Casablanca – An Imagined City
Mention Morocco and spark images of historic royalty and fabulous dreams. The diverse country contains sweeping desert and rambling mountains, untouched coastlines and valleys that wind in and out of vibrant, labyrinthine markets.
Casablanca is a metropolis steeped in both cultural history and thriving modernity. When people think of the city they most often think of unforgettable romance and constant action. The streets brim with excitement, connecting the contemporary art galleries to the millennia of history. Your private transfer, set up by a Morocco travel agent, meets you at the airport and takes you to a remarkable hotel near the vibrant heart of the city center. The lively cafes are filled with locals eating and conversing. The relaxed and jovial look of everyone in the evening contrasts with the city’s normally fast pace. The boulevards are wide and lined with towering palms. The breeze brings a sweet aroma of palm oil and leaves.
Buildings combine the traditional décor and modern architecture. The family is instantly captivated. Henri Prost designed Mohammed V Square. The tower rises over 164 feet and offers a tremendous view of the extensive metropolis. The fountain was added in the mid 1970s and adds a touch of refreshing mist to the air. The sound of trickling water offers a calm respite from the fast pace of the encompassing city. Parc de la Ligue Arabe is a promenade lined with palm trees and designed in 1918. Locals stroll through the park and find the comforts of the countryside in the manicured pathways at the heart of their city. So much of Casablanca weaves you in and out of the contemporary life and historic fantasy.
