Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco. Economic capital, is located on the Atlantic coast 80 km south of the capital Rabat. It is the most populous city with 6,434,422 Moroccan people. Casablanca takes its name from the fact that, formerly, Portuguese sailors who paid this place, identified by a small white house on the hill of Anfa, "branca home." The name Anfa is in XI century texts, which traces its founding (by Zenetas) at that time. Leo Africanus also mentions it as a small city in the fifteenth century. The Portuguese accused of harboring North African pirates and, in retaliation, decided to attack with 50 warships and 10,000 men in 1468, led by Prince John of Portugal (future John II of Portugal).
