Volubilis

visit Volubilis

The ancient Roman city Volubilis is a romantic vision among colorful medinas and kasbahs that make up the bohemian aura of Morocco. Located on a ridge over the fertile plains to the west of Fez, the city is UNESCO-listed for its exceptionally well-preserved structure. The enduring beauty of its triumphal arches and delicate mosaics made it through countless raids and a devastating earthquake. But, it wasn’t until the French took over Morocco that the city was unearthed for the admiration of visitors. While half of the city still lies underneath the ground, the excavated site offers a glimpse into days of old. It boasts dozens of houses, each symbolizing a holy Roman figure.

Begin your blissful stroll in the ceremonious street Decumanus Maximus. You will soon become wrapped up in intriguing folk tales of the time. From Venus to Hercules, and bathing Nymphs to heroic warriors, a myriad of gorgeous images adorns colorful mosaics inside the houses. The most spectacular is the House of Orpheus, with a hammam, a solarium, and intact mosaics of the musical genius of Orpheus.

On higher ground, the city’s imperial glory is complete with the Capitol, the Basilica, and the Forum. Look for the traces of long-lost traditions on your way. Fertile olive gardens surrounding the city were once the principal source that gave life to it. And, the remains of oil production are still present in the buildings. Photographing the old oil presses and mills goes well with some archeological briefings from your guide. Wait until dusk time to see the magical beauty of the site washed in golden lights.
