A false start with my petite taxi who took me to the old medina - despite my map of town and saying NOT near the mosque. Market - souk - limited meaning - but artisana - Palais Royale hit the jackpot. His mistake - but only 20dh [on the meter] from my apartment at the Placa de la Victoire. Antiques... More

it thus doesn't feel like Morocco. I'm not over keen on this area. I know, there is no hassle at all, but that's what I don't like! There seems to be so little of the frantic bustle and hustle of other souks in Morocco, even less than in the laid back Old Medina of Casablanca. For me, this area is... More

Shopping in an authentic atmosphere. Traditional arts crafts, pottery, paints, rugs, mirrors... I love Habous!

Lots to see with shops of every type. Much used by the locals. Not easy to navigate but that is part of the charm. Well worth a visit

There are large boulevands, streets you can walk, we recommend the Az Anfa residential quartier, to se some wonderful houses, gardens, build in pure Maroccan style and very stylish itself.
