Casablanca’s history Morocco:
Casablanca is rich in Paleolithic sites preserved in a sequence of coastal layers, the uncovered archaeological and anthropological remnants of which have contributed to a better knowledge of Morocco’s Paleolithic and early settlement in its regional and African context.
In the 6th century BC, the Phoenicians founded a tiny trade station in what is today the opulent neighborhood of Anfa. Anfa became a provincial capital in the 7th century AD. The harbor became a sanctuary for pirates and criminals in the early 15th century.
The pirates of Anfa posed such a major danger to the Portuguese that they were ejected and settled there, built walls, and christened the city Casa Branca. After a terrible earthquake in 1755, the Portuguese decided to depart the colony.
The city was afterward restored and reinforced by Sultan Sidi Mohammed ben Abdullah. By the mid-nineteenth century, Europe was thriving, and it was looking to Morocco for more grain and wool. The rich plains around Casablanca quickly provided European markets, and agents and merchants returned, renaming the city Casablanca. Following Morocco’s independence in 1956, the city became the country’s locomotive and a symbol of a modern, energetic, and open Morocco.\
Morocco’s capital, Fez, is the country’s first city. Along with Marrakech, Meknes, and Rabat, it is one of the four imperial cities. It is considered the country’s religious and cultural hub in Morocco. Its institution, which is known for studying Arabic and the Muslim faith, is a rite of passage for many Moroccan students.
Fès el-Bali, the old area within the city walls, Fès el-Jdid, the new area, where the Mellah, the Jewish quarter, is located, and Ville Nouvelle (New Town), the French area in the northwest of the city, are the three zones. The medina of Fez el-Bali, the city’s bigger of the two, is the world’s biggest pedestrian zone and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981. Sass Airport is the city’s primary airport.
