Volubilis Morocco – Not Quite Rome

Published February 2nd, 2012

One of my favorite places to visit in Morocco was the Roman ruins at Volubilis located near Meknes between Fez and Rabat. One meaning for the name is “sculpture” and I can only guess that the place had lots of sculptures at one time since it was a small Roman city. I’ve also found that the name in Latin means “Morning Glory”. That seems to go along with what I was told by the “freelance guides” at the ruins. I visited Volubilis twice during my stay in Morocco. The first day was one of those perfect sky days; just a few clouds and a perfect sunset. The second trip was rainy and cloudy all day which allowed for high color saturation slides while shooting under an umbrella. I’ve mixed images here from both trips.
