World Heritage-listed Volubilis was one of the Roman empire's most remote bases on the edge of a long, high plateau. When it was damaged by an earthquake in the 18th century ( the same 1755 Lisbon earthquake that did so much damage in Rabat /Sale but notably as Volubilis was started in 40AD and the earthquake was in 1755 the ruins were exposed for 1500+ years!) , much of the marble was taken for construction in Meknes. Rashid was our guide and enabled us to see the highlights (villas with mosaics and most ruins) of this very large site in 1.5 hours. Recommend hiring a guide.
