Gueliz and Hivernage
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, international restaurants, art galleries, upscale boutiques, and antiques stores. Connecting the two sectors, between avenues Mohammed VI and Hassan II, are the delightful public 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 in the city, with gated private residences interspersed with smart hotels, casinos, nightclubs, restaurants, and chic cafés.
