Casablanca was the most surprising destination in Morocco for me (I had zero expectations) and these Art Deco buildings were a bit part of why. Here I was, expecting to see mosques and riads, and I could just as well have been in Miami!

Along Rue Indriss Lahrizi, Rue Tahar Sebti and the south side of Blvd Mohammed V, are some impressive art deco buildings built in the Mauresque architectural style. If French colonial architecture and the traditional Moroccan aestetic AND art deco had a baby, you'd have Le Mauresque - lots of intricate wrought iron work, tiling and carved friezes - beautifully evocative of a bygone era. Oh, and don't miss Hotel Transatlantique, a stunning example of Moroccan Art Deco at it's finest.

The Art Deco era style of so many of the buildings is interesting and beautiful - a throwback to another time. One of the most beautiful and elegant places to stay in a revamped private home with original Art Deco design work is the 5 star Le Doge, in a quiet residential neighborhood.
