3/4.- Casablanca, Hassan II Mosque, detail


The Mosque of Hassan II is not only one of the biggest religious buildings in the world, but one of the most expensive too. Its cost will reach almost one billion US dollars when it is completely finished. The mosque has the tallest minaret in the world, with 210 meters, and room for 25,000 worshippers. The area surrounding the mosque is under construction. A Koranic school and university is currently being constructed in front of the mosque.

Other interesting things to do in Casablanca are a visit to the beach at Ain Diab, where you can see how modern Casablanca youth is; Lusitania, the Jewish district of Casablanca; the Place Mohammed V, with its French colonial architecture; and the old medina, smaller and not as interesting as the medinas in Fez, Meknes or Marrakech.
