  Visit one of the most impressive sites in Casablanca - the massive edifice of the Mosque of Hassan II.  Opened in 1993 this huge building is part on land and part on sea, and one area water can be seen through a glass floor.  It can accommodate 25,000 worshippers and the main roof is retractable to create an open courtyard.  It is one of the only religious sites open to non-Muslims.
Continue on to visit a unique and fascinating part of Moroccan history at the Museum of Judaism.

  The landmark Rick's Cafe in Casablanca is a restaurant, bar and cafe.  Opened in March 2004, the place was designed to recreate the bar made famous by Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman in the movie classic 'Casablanca'.
Set in an old courtyard-style mansion against the walls of the old Medina, the restaurant piano bar (with in-house pianist) is filled with architectural and decorative details reminiscent of the film - curved arches, a sculpted bar, balconies, balustrades and beaded and stencilled brass lighting and plants that cast shadows on the white walls.
