Discover The ruins of Volubilis Morocco

North of Meknes, Volubilis bears witness to the ancestral past of the Middle Atlas region. Its Roman ruins, which stretch over several miles, are the best preserved ruins in the whole of Morocco. Don't miss out on seeing the Triumphal Arch, the Basilica and the Capitol, all built between the 1st and 2nd centuries. The site also features a large number of mosaics, most of which depict figures from Roman mythology. These have been wonderfully spared from the ravages of time. Since 1997, Volubilis has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
