The basilica

Volubilis, Morocco

The basiica of Volubilis is very impressive, and even if there is not much beyond walls an columns left of it, there will be no problems for you to imagine what it looked like when it was in full shape. 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.
