Sqala

Visit the military history.

This former military bastion, right by on the sea edge, is one of the few buildings that has remained unchanged over the centuries in the Old Medina of Casablanca. Built in 1769, you can enjoy spectacular views of the fishing port and leisure boats, from the fort. To get there you have to go through the new gate, also known as Bab Jédid or Bab Marrakech, which leads to the Boulevard Tahar el-Alaui. This is an interesting area where you can wander along the narrow streets in the Old Medina, full of houses built during the French protectorate. Part of the old XVIII century wall, which can be accessed via a small square has also survived. There are also several tombs in the shade of a fig tree, as well as the Shrine of Sidi el-Kairuani, a Saint originally from Kairouan and the city's first patron saint.
