Mohammédia is a port city on the west coast of Morocco between Casablanca and Rabat in the region of Casablanca-Settat.

It has a population of 765 890 6th in Morocco (2014 census).HistoryEarly historyThe harbour, at what is now Mohammédia, was originally named Fédala . This name comes from the Arabic words Fadl Allah which means "favor of God". Traces still exist of its business role under the Almoravid dynasty. It was frequented in the 14th and 15th centuries by merchant ships from Europe seeking cereals and dried fruits.In 1773, the Sultan Sidi Mohammed ben Abdallah made of Fédala a grains warehouse of Tamesna province and built the Kasbah to protect the shops for traders. He built the white masjid Al Atik as well.French ProtectorateDuring the precolonial period, competition between the Western powers to ensure the economical exploitation of Africa was behind the merger of Europeans interests in the ports of Morocco. In the region of Fédala, the German family Mannesmann acquired a large area of land.The Treaty of November 4, 1911 between France and Germany on the partition of Africa forced the Mannesmann family to abandon the lands they held for Georges and Jacques Hersent, two French industrialists, who noticed the existence of a natural bay, valuable for the creation of a large port at low cost.Mohammedia is in Grand Casablanca Region.
