A bit tacky

Quite authentic but cheap and tacky stuff on offer generally. We thought it might be a bit scary for a lone woman.

The medina starts around a clock-tower and its first streets are packed with commercial life. Its charm becomes more clear as you penetrate the streets to the west and closer to the sea front.

The last medina I visited was about 15 years ago in Marrakesh. It was charming with semi-aggressive vendors offering carpets, jellabas, pottery, leather goods, spices, another local items. In every other shop, the owner would offer us heavily-sugared, but delicious, mint tea. Fast forward to 2015: the Casa version similarly had its twists and turns but 95% of the items... More

The people, the smells, the sounds, the excitement were almost electric! This was my first introduction to the Moroccan marketplace - so exciting!

great deals, one should expect to haggle a lot. Keep in mind that you will most likeyl find a better deal for a much a better price at the stand few feets away, it's just the way it is. You go home with a feeling that you overpaid, but it's fun and a has a good buzz. The food over... More

Fake guides ask for money for thei "help". Bargaining is difficult and you can easily get 50% off these prices at Agadir airport shop. People in general are dirty, arrogant and unpleasant. I have been to Medina in Rabat and it was way better.

After having travelled in Morocco and seen medinas such as the one in Marrakesh and Essaouira, I was not particularly enchanted by the one in Casablanca. I think Casa has much more to offer than its Medina.

Casablanca's Old Medina is much smaller than its counterparts in other Moroccan cities such as Fes and Marrakesh, but equally interesting and easier to navigate, if the visitor becomes lost, by just walking in any straight direction will arrive at a high surrounding wall which can then be followed until one of several exits (Babs) is reached. The main entrance... More

Very crowded oriental bazaar for tourists. Keep away from guys pretending as guides, they become a nuisance fast. Visit Rick's Café at the opposite end of the medina from the main entrance.

A typical souq, this huge old market its the typical place to find bargains in Casablanca and fight for prices. Sometimes those fights tends to be a little too much for some people with lots of pushy sellers and street vendors. The biggest downfall in my opinion its the cleanliness of the place with badly maintain inner streets and lots... More
