Volubilis Archeological Site


Volubilis is an archaeological site in Morocco. Its situated near Meknes (between Fez and Rabat). The nearest town is Moulay Idriss. Volubilis features the best preserved Roman ruins in Northern Africa. In 1997 the site was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Volubilis was the administrative center of the province in Roman Africa called Mauretania Tingitana. The fertile lands of the province produced many commodities such as grain and olive oil, which were exported to Rome, contributing to the province’s wealth and prosperity. Archaeology has documented the presence of a Jewish community in the Roman period as well. This photo of the Volubilis Archeological site was not taken by me, but it has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 23rd of July 2011.
