Volubilis, Meknes-Tafilalet Region

4.3
#1 of 15 in Historic Sites in Meknes-Tafilalet Region
Discover the mix of Berber and Roman history and architecture at Volubilis, a partially excavated ancient city, now a World Heritage Site. After coming under Roman rule in the 1st century CE, the town quickly grew into a large colonial Roman city on the edge of the empire. The triumphal arch and basilica stand as the most impressive structures of the archaeological site: note their distinctly Roman style reinterpreted into a North African context, making use of local materials and several regional motifs.
