Or, choose to explore the mighty Alhambra palace in Granada, one of Spain's most treasured sites.

17 Nov 2019
Casablanca, Morocco

Steeped in romance, Casablanca lures visitors with its heady mix of neo-Moorish splendor and French influence. Known as "Casa" to locals, its streets exude an atmosphere of bygone days. Made famous by the 1942 eponymous film, today it is one of Africa's most important ports. Parisian-style boulevards unfold past cafés and colonial buildings. Perhaps the most prominent legacy of French occupation is the massive white Casablanca Cathedral, a neo-Moorish masterwork built in 1930 for European Roman Catholics. The city's medina is a maze of warrens pulsing with old-world energy, the hollers of carpet merchants, and the fragrance of incense. The most impressive structure is the Hassan II Mosque, the country's largest and most magnificent.
