Located about 20 miles due north of Meknes, Volubilis is an ancient city and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Volubilis was first built in the third century BCE as the capital of the Berber kingdom of Mauretania. Then, for three centuries, Romans occupied the city and expanded it further. Finally, it was the capital of the Emirate of Morocco for three centuries, and to think, all of this occurred before 1100 CE! Large portions of the ruins still exist, as they were intact until just a couple of centuries ago. If you can get away from the city to explore one of the Roman Empire`s southwesternmost cities, take the opportunity. You won`t regret the trip!
