Day Trip From Fes To Meknes Volubilis – The UNESCO world heritage site of Volubilis, the imperial city of Meknes, and the holy city of Moulay Idriss, are the most visited destinations in Morocco.
Volubilis (Roman ruins) is an archaeological site in North Africa. It is near Fès in Morocco’s Jebel Zerhoun Plain. It dates back to the third century B.C. and served as the old capital of the kingdom of Mauretania. Prior to becoming the seat of an Islamic dynasty, it was a Roman fortress, then a Christian enclave independent of Rome, and finally an Islamic capital.
Meknes is one of the four Imperial cities of Morocco and is situated in the center of the country’s northern region. It is also the sixth biggest city in Morocco in terms of population. Meknes was first established in the 11th century by the Almoravids as a military city. During the reign of Sultan Moulay Ismail (1672–1727), the son of the founder of the Alaouite dynasty, Meknes was elevated to the position of capital of Morocco. Meknes was transformed by Moulay Ismail into a magnificent metropolis in Spanish-Moorish architecture. It was enclosed by high walls and had spectacular doorways.
