Discover Casablanca's Oldest Bookstores
First of all, we are going to meet at the city center, next to Café de France. It’s just a 5-minute walk from the city center. It is Casablanca’s most famous/ oldest bookstores market. It was and still a haven for many writers and thinkers. This market resists technology that switched knowledge and information from hardcover and paperback books to digital books. You’ll come across plenty of tucked away book stalls. It’s so likely that you’ll find rare books, secondhand books and magazines in different languages. I can definitely help you bargain with the booksellers to get a book with a low price. Bhira played a major role in cultivating Bidawis (Casablanca’s inhabitants) from the 70s and it is definitely a significant mark in the Moroccan readers’ memory. After our tour at the bookstores teem with never-came-across books, bookstore designs and intriguing bookies, we will now head to an authentic café in Old Medina where we can discuss any topic. What I love the most about this experience is meeting people from all over the world and telling them the story of my city and the history of the old bookstores! We can also take a look at a free museum to know more about Casablanca’s history. I’d be more than happy to provide information concerning great restaurants, bars or top attractions in Casablanca that you shouldn’t miss.
