Place Mohammed V

Place Mohammed V information

This is where the architect Henri Prost really went to town. The grand square is surrounded by public buildings whose designs were later copied in buildings throughout Morocco, including the law courts, the splendid wilaya (old police headquarters, now the governor’s office), the Bank al-Maghrib, the post office and the Ministry of Defence building. Many grand boulevards lined with wonderful architecture go off this square. To the south is the Parc de la Ligue Arabe , designed in 1918 with a majestic palm-tree-lined promenade.
