This Moroccan city became famous when Rick and Elsa had their stormy love affair in the war drama Casablanca. But Hollywood never even came to the city to film the movie, thus missing the opportunity to discover the secrets and charm of Casablanca.
Situated in the west of the country, this city bathed by the Atlantic preserves its old quarter together with modern buildings that surprise the traveller. It is one of the busiest cities in Morocco and the most recommended if you are looking to connect with the local culture, as offered by Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Casablanca.
The diverse and open character of the city inspires the philosophy of Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Casablanca. A city that unites history and an open attitude to the architectural experimentation of the best urban creators. For this reason, its urban centre includes styles ranging from neo-Moorish to art deco: a surprising environment.
The city is also home to the largest mosque in the world, that of Hassan II, as well as the largest artificial port in Africa. Casablanca has a rich cultural and gastronomic life, where local cuisine and traditions are mixed with the post-independence novelties of Morocco and the legacy of the city's cultural centre.
The fusion of the two essences of the city: modern and European, is reflected in stays at Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Casablanca, without losing Moroccan aesthetics. The culinary offer is a tribute to the local culture and fusion cuisine, the starting point for getting to know the city from the Central Market next door and then losing yourself in its narrow streets.
Casablanca evokes images of the movies, but it is also an unmistakable space, full of contrasts and opportunities to try out new experiences. Barceló Hotel Group's hotels in Casablanca allow us to get to know the thousand faces of a destination as eclectic as it is cosy, which will star in some of your best memories.
