Roman Ruins in Morocco
The most striking aspect of Volubilis in Morocco is just how much it resembles the Italian countryside. No wonder it was chosen as a fringe military outpost! The ruins remained almost completely intact until a devastating 18th century earthquake. Moroccan leaders subsequently ransacked the site to acquire stone to build the nearby city of Meknes. When you visit Morocco, go with a guide and have him point out all the gorgeous floor mosaics that tell the stories of Roman gods and goddesses. They’re vivid and well-preserved, and a nice memory jog through mythology.
