Built in 1923 by the French who were ruling Morocco at the time, the new Medina, or new town, is a lively Casablanca marketplace in a quarter called Habous, in the southeastern part of the city, about four miles from the city center.
As the city center, a natural gathering place in a traditional sense, New Medina is a living museum, a charming center of everything that is happening in the city, full of souks, narrow alleys, arcades, artisanal shops and places selling souvenirs. It is a mecca for tourists who soak up the atmosphere and always look for bargains. One of the most interesting buildings in New Medina is the Mahakma du Pacha, the former Casablanca court of law.
