Many of Casablanca’s most popular attractions are located close to Medina, so it is a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Chleuh Mosque and Marina Casablanca are just two of the popular places to visit. Two other great attractions that are within a short distance of Medina are the Port of Casablanca and the United Nations Square.
Medina has a number of museums and theaters nearby that allow visitors to really get a feel for the area. To catch home-grown and touring acts, book tickets to the Complex Cultural Sidi Belyout, one of the region’s great live concert venues.
If the weather is good, follow the lead of the locals who know the area best and head outside to the local natural destinations. If you’d like to spend some time in a green urban park visit the Parc de la Ligue Arabe.
If you like to grab a bargain, explore the Central Market of Casablanca.
When you’re ready to wind down after enjoying the delights of Medina, check in to one of the many local accommodation options. The Sofitel Casablanca Tour blanche, the Novotel Casablanca City Center and the Le Royal Mansour Méridien are among the best places to stay while you are enjoying this special area.
