Once upon a time Casablanca was no more than a small Berber settlement clinging to the slopes of the Anfa hills and it was called Anfa that time. Later on, it attracted the attention of the Portuguese for strategic and commercial reasons and they called it Casa Branca because of a white-painted house appearing from far away of the sea. After the Spanish came they changed the name to Casa Blanca in Spanish which means the White House or Dar Albaida in its leteral Arabic form.
