Don't know why but was pretty stunned to find a RC church in the middle of Casablanca! Beautiful building with fantastic stained glass windows on the inside. It is very European and modern and very well looked after. We stopped as part of a tour with Thomson Dream Cruises, open all day for the tourists it is a busy spot,... More

During our two week journey through Morocco, my wife and I saw many mosques and Islamic shrines which were historical and great examples of Moroccan architecture and design. We also saw a few ancient synagogues and Jewish mellahs and graveyards. However, the only Christian church we saw in Morocco was the Notre Dame de Lourdes Church in Casablanca. This church... More

The Cathedral is a european style build with many stain glass windows. There is a small grotto dedicated to The Lady of Lourdes. The Cathedral is situated on a roundabout, where the tour buses just park on, adding the chaos in the streets

This is an interesting church in downtown Casablanca. Outside the church is a small grotto dedicated to Mary. The inside of the church is noteworthy for its stained glass windows which run along the nave of the building. This is a modern Christian church in a basically Islamic city which makes it interesting. There is also a washroom on the... More

Unlike any other church we've been in, this one had amazing stained glass windows running down both sides of the church. The afternoon light coming in through these walls of glass was lovely. The church is a cool sea of calm in the bustling city. The unexpected grotto just inside the gate in the courtyard is a replica of the... More

The imposing Notre Dame de Lourdes Church in Casablanca has very obvious European influences and is a striking contrast to many of the more traditional attractions that can be found in the city of Casablanca. In fact, you’ll see this massive edifice quite easily from a distance as it towers above many of the smaller, locally funded structures that surround... More

when I visited there was an exhibit of modern Moroccan art underway (fee = 20 dirham) that was very interesting. The cathedral itself is modern and starkly white, which is not to my taste. There are some interesting (though rather small) stained glass windows. The surrounding park is pleasant; the neighborhood (home to a number of embassies/consulates) is interesting.

This is a very modern church with contemporary stained glass windows running the entire length of both side walls of this church. The work was amazing. These were very different than any stained glass we have seen before in churches.

Worth a stop and it is free! The stained glass panels were placed along the entire length of the church.
