  Visiting Casablanca (in pictures)  

Casablanca (or simply Casa to the locals) has benefited greatly from the film by the same name, giving the city a mythical stature which it undoubtedly deserves.
The Hassan II Mosque here is the biggest attraction as its minaret is the highest in the world. The mosque itself though is the third biggest mosque in the world (after the ones in Mekkah and Medina).
