The area which is today Casablanca was settled by Berbers in the 7th century BC. It was used as a port by the Phoenicians and later the Romans. Its ancient name was “Anfa” and known as a small independent kingdom. During the 14th century, under the Merinids, Anfa rose as an important port. In the early 15th century, the town became an independent state once again, and emerged as a safe harbor for pirates and privateers, leading to it being targeted by the Portuguese, who destroyed the town in 1468. The Portuguese used the ruins of Anfa to build a military fortress in 1515. The town that grew up around it was called “Casa Branca”, meaning “white house” in Portuguese.
