More About Volubilis and Moulay Idriss

Located in the beautiful and fertile Moulay Idriss Zerhoun area, the ruins of Volubilis stand as testament to more than 10 centuries of history which began in the 2nd century BC until the foundation of Fès in the late 8th century AD. Today one can wander the historic ruins and see evidence of a sophisticated ancient city complete with residences, bakery, olive presses, civic buildings, impressive arched entrances and stunning mosaic floors.

Five kilometers from Volubilis is another important site in Morocco. Situated north of Meknes at the base of Mount Zerhoun, the town of Moulay Idriss Zerhoun is regarded as holy by many Moroccans. The town is home to the Mausoleum of Idriss I, the town’s founder, and also to Morocco’s only mosque that has a round minaret.
