Casablanca Cathedral, Morocco

Casablanca Cathedral, or Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is a former Roman Catholic church located in Casablanca, Morocco. It was constructed in 1930 and was designed French architect Paul Tournon, using the Neo-Gothic style. The twin towers flanking the west front look like square minarets, and the small windows that pierce the upper parts of the cathedral would be at home in any mosque.

Open to the public, for a nominal fee, you can climb the tower stairs all the way up to the spire where you will get a fantastic view of the city, but be aware that the stairs are made concrete and crumbling brick and there are no safety ropes or guide rails, so this is not for the faint-hearted. You also need to watch out for the pigeon nests and chicks on the steps as you go up.
