Population of Cities in Morocco (2021)
Regarded as a gateway to Africa, Morocco is a diverse country with Berber, Arabian and European influences and a landscape that features mountains, desert and a coastline that stretches along the Atlantic Ocean. Its capital city of Rabat is located on the northern coast and has a population of 580,000, which increases to 1.2 million for the metropolitan area. Although Rabat Morocco's political center, it is not the largest city in the country by population – in fact, it is the seventh-largest.
Casablanca is Morocco's most populous city, with 3.35 million residents in its urban area. Casablanca is considered to be the economic and commercial center of Morocco, as well as its main sea port. Casablanca is also a culturally vibrant city, with an impressive mix of Moorish and European art deco architecture that reflects its French colonial past. The city of Tangier, located on the north coast of Morocco where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, is also an important city with a long history. In the early twentieth century, it was regarded as an international city and was known for attracting European and American diplomats and spies. Today, the city has a population of almost one million, making it the third-largest in the country.
