Near the city of Meknes, lays the excavated Berber and Roman city, Volubilis. Before becoming capital to the kingdom of Mauretania, Vollubilis developed as an Amazigh settlement. After it grew, it became proto-Carthaginian.
After the Roman rule during the 1st-century A.D, its lands expanded to cover more than 42 hectares and 2.6 kilometres of circuit walls. During the 2nd century, and thanks to its olive cultivation, Volubilis established many major buildings, including a basilica and a temple. The Romans did well with embellishing the houses with tiles of mosaic floors. Through such authenticity and creativity, Volubilis has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s exceptionally well-preserved and represents a huge part of the Roman’s colonial towns.
