Bogart Did Not Sleep Here

Casablanca… ah, yes. Humphrey Bogart steamily kissing Ingrid Bergman. Morocco in the 1940s. WAIT. Wrong Casablanca. The pastoral vineyard-filled valley of Casablanca in Chile has no relation to the iconic WWII movie of the same name. Chile’s Casablanca (the word means white house)  is named after the Chilean town of Casablanca founded in 1753 under the original name  Santa Barbara Queen of Casablanca (English version) in honor of Doña Barbara de Braganza, wife of Fermando VI, King of Spain.
