It was ok to go there because we where lokking for a special item. Argan oil and found a good store for that. Salesmen were not too annoying.

We had a day tour of Casablanca which included many stops and one was here. We really enjoyed learning about the Portuguese past and present as well as the new areas of the city where there are Christians and Muslims, Portuguese and Moroccans living all in harmony. We also visited the old city sisterne underground where water was stored. Beautiful... More

Awesome place to wander around going into the little shops buying little trinkets and morocan outfits and yes the lastest fashion clothing and accesories. Always bargain for a better price, they really want to make that sale.

Bunch of junk. Very low pressure sales so no worries there but after visiting some of the great Medinas of Morocco this was not worth the time.

It was a pleasant experience, walking in rhe narrow streets of the old quartier of the fishermen and the small and simple shops on the streets. Most ofthe windos and doors are painted in traditional blue. The walk ends out of the walls , at the sea shore, newly renovated to the convenience and the pkeasure of the visitors. It... More

Its quite dirty and crowded. We didnt like it one bit. I think its no where near the medina at Marrakech or at the other older cities. There are a lot of eating joints here though they didnt seem very hygenic. I'd give it a miss

Casa was my first port of call on a 3 week vacation. I had loads of time to kill so of course I went to the Old Medina. It is centrally located and easy to wander through the narrow lane ways. I was travelling alone (female in mid 50's) and experienced little annoyance. I spent a lot of time navigating... More

Keep valuables secure but wander around this smallish area and take in the smells, sounds and sights. Nice people. Picturesque old doors and buildings and shops going back in time. Enjoyed it.
