The colonial city

A colonial past.

One of the reasons, if not the main one, why Casablanca enjoys a certain international fame is because of the film, which bears its name and was filmed by Michael Curtiz in 1942 and starred Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. Apart from phrases, as famous as "Play It Again Sam", "We'll always have Paris" or "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship", the award winning film (shot entirely in the Hollywood studios) resulted in the whole world knowing about the poor area in the centre of Casablanca, recreated to the smallest detail. Those who visit the Moroccan city today, to explore those streets, ought to visit the colonial city, which was built between 1912 and 1930. In this area some of the typical buildings can still be seen from that era, as well as the continuous hustle and bustle of people who are going to and fro to do their daily shopping or chat to their friends and relatives.
