Are you planning to visit the Habous Quarter? See our information below!
The Habous Quarter is perhaps the most traditional district of Casablanca, resembling a small souk, such as you often encounter in Morocco.
Most of the city is fairly modern, but the Habous district has best preserved its authentic character. There are numerous traditional shops where you can buy shoes, teapots and colorful mosaic tiles. It is much quieter in the Habous Quarter than around Mohammed V Square or near the Grand Mosque. You can not only buy nice souvenirs, but also admire the royal palace. From the outside, because you can’t go inside.
The Habous Quarter is open Monday through Friday from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM.
