In addition to office buildings, contemporary shops, and malls—none of which may exceed the nearest mosque's height—Guéliz has plenty of sidewalk cafés, snack bars, restaurants, art galleries, upscale boutiques, and antiques stores. Connecting the two sectors, between avenues Mohammed VI and Hassan II, are the delightful public El Harti Gardens.
Hivernage is a leafy suburb by comparison, with olive trees, roses, and orange trees lining its boulevards. It’s the most expensive urban residential district within the city boundaries, with gated private residences interspersed with resort hotels, casinos, nightclubs, restaurants, and chic cafés. It was also one of the first districts to be built outside the medina during the French Protectorate in the 1920s.
