Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco. Located in the central-western part of Morocco bordering the Atlantic Ocean.
The original name of Casablanca was Anfa in Berber language, by at least the seventh century BC. After the Portuguese took control of the city in the 15th century AD, they rebuilt it, changing the name to Casa Branca. It derives from the Portuguese word combination meaning "White House" (branca "white", casa "house"). The present name, which is the Spanish version, came when the Portuguese kingdom was integrated into a personal union to the Spanish kingdom.
