Volubilis

Located about 33 km north of Meknes, Volubilis is a partly excavated Berber city, an important Roman outpost, and the best-preserved archaeological site in Morocco. It is commonly considered to be the ancient capital of the kingdom of Mauritania. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997, it is famous for the many beautiful mosaics preserved in situ.

Only about half the 40-hectare site has been excavated, and the better-known monuments are in the northern part of the site, furthest from the entrance in the south. Visitors can wander the site at will, although certain parts of the monument are roped off and off-limits. There is also a small on-site museum which displays some of the most prized artifacts discovered on the site.

The ideal season to visit Volubilis is the Spring, when the wild flowers blossom and the surrounding fields are greenest. The site is most magical either early in the morning or around dusk, when the last rays of the sun light the ancient columns.
