Avenue des F.A.R, Meknes 50000, Morocco
One of a small amount of similar sites open to non-Muslims, this tomb along the main street in Meknes is a colorful site to behold. A series of ornately tiled and carved antechambers lead you to the tomb of the sultan, where you must remove your...

Meknes, Morocco

It seems as though I spent most of this trip completely lost, but it was during those hours of wandering that I discovered the best things to see--like this, one of many scenes from a day of local shopping. Besides the oranges, which we also...

Meknes, Morocco
The great Almohad sultan, Moulay Ismail made Meknes his imperial capital and it is there that he is entombed. Although his mausoleum lies stone’s throw from Place El-Hedim and Bab al-Mansour, it’s not easy to find because it’s not marked. You will...

Situated not far from Meknes, between Fes and Rabat, the Roman ruins of Volubilis stand as a testament to a culture that changed the world forever. In the fertile area that the ruined city is located, it's difficult to remember you're in Morocco....

WOW....not what you would expect to find in Morocco....Roman Ruins!!! They are so intact, despite being completely open to the elements. I loved looking at all the tile mosaics of mythology.

It's worth it, when visiting the Roman ruins of Volubilis just outside Meknes in Morocco, to hire a guide. He'll take you through the stone ruins and tell you about the sophisticated city that housed and fed 20,000 people from the time when B.C....

In the spring, ladies collect wild snails by the creek beds. We found them later in the markets in Fez.

The furthest west that the Romans reached was Volubilis, in northern Morocco. They are on the road from Meknes to Fez, and are open for touring for a small fee. A local guide is recommended.

Medina, Meknes, Morocco
The streets are so narrow in the medina, that the only means of transport are the donkeys. They are driven in a frenzy, careening down the pathways, and you must jump out of the way or risk being run down. I think it's a "scare the tourist" game...

Meknes, Morocco
This is one of my car shots, on the drive from Casablanca to Meknes. I believe this simple mosque was just on the outskirts of Meknes. The roads are excellent in Morocco and well marked. I highly recommend driving around the country. The north is...

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....
