Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco full of vibrant boulevards and colourful bazaars, and with a history going back centuries. Following an earthquake in 1755 the town was rebuilt and renamed Dar Al Beida (The White House) in Arabic, which the Spanish eventually translated as Casablanca. The French gave Casablanca its wide boulevards, public parks and imposing civic buildings. Explore the medina and the Habbous souk district selling all manner of items. The astonishing Hassan II Mosque dominates the entire city. It has the world's tallest minaret and the prayer hall can accommodate 25,000.

The oldest continuously populated city in Spain, Cadiz is a unique ocean port in south west Spain that has been inhabited for the last 3000 years. Narrow cobbled streets, small squares and weather-beaten buildings dating back to the Moors make the old city a charming place to explore with look-out towers used by merchants to spot returning trade ships scattered along the skyline. Cadiz also has a fine collection of ancient and contemporary art in its many museums. From Cadiz, take the opportunity to explore Seville during the famous ‘Feria de Abril’ fiesta.
