Old Medina

While Casablanca's medina (old town) isn't as iconic or large as others in Morocco, it is still an iconic part of the city, showcasing pre-French colonial influences, such as webs of narrow alleys and small souks (markets). The old town is also home to a colonial-era clock tower and bastion.
