Volubilis was a Roman settlement dating from 3rd century BC. Volubilis was a central administrative city for this part of Roman Africa, responsible for the grain producing in this fertile region, and exports to Rome. Volubilis was also administering contacts with the Berber tribes which the Romans never managed to suppress, but who only came as far as to cooperate with the Romans for mutual benefits.
The basiica of Volubilis is very impressive, its walls rise above you more than 10 metres and are often in so good shape that you easily get the feeling that you are back 2,000 years in time.
