This is the main sight to visit in Casablanca, it is the biggest mosque in Morocco and the 5th largest in the world. You can see the mosque from most points of the city and it is the main center point where all moroccans go to pray. You can also here from its speakers calling people to come to the Mosque. They didnt allow us to film inside the mosque but we did get a lot of footage of the exterior which in my opinion is more beautiful then the interior. You cant go to Morocco and not see this mosque! 

How to get there:
By the sea in Casablanca
