Casa legende
The modern city of Casablanca was founded around 1770. Bearing at the origin the name of Casa Branca (Portuguese name) , it was renamed Dar El Beida (in Arabic, "The White House" by the

Sultan Sidi Mohammed and finally became "Casablanca") name imposed by the Spanish merchants who had settled their commercial port in the place.

Immortalized by a monumental movie, the white city is a bridge between the East and the West. Lively, cosmopolitan and tolerant, Casablanca tells the history of the twentieth century; around its traditional inner city is the modern neighborhood with an Art Nouveau style, its Art Déco housse, the huge minaret of the great Hassan II Mosque, the beautiful residential area on its Anfa hill, and the glass buildings and twin towers of its business area.
