1. Casablanca

Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco with a total population of 3,359,818.

The city has its origins in the 7th Century when Berbers, an indigenous ethnic tribe, made it their capital. The Portuguese invaded what is now Casablanca, then referred to as Anfa, in Morocco in the 15th Century. They renamed it as Casa Branca in 1575.

Arabs, later on, rebuilt the city after a massive earthquake and named it Dar Al Beida or the white house.
