Volubilis is an ancient Berber and Roman city in Morocco, dating back to the 3RD century BC.
I spend an afternoon wandering the ruins and I’m extremely impressed at the craftsmanship and attention to detail in the city – the Romans sure knew how to build and had running water, communal baths of different temperatures, and somewhat functioning toilets.
It’s also blowing my mind to realize the Romans were basically all over this part of the earth back in the day – they really did run the place.
This image depicts Hercules – apparently he spent some time here.
It was also really cool to see images of Lions, elephants and giraffes – which all did live in Morocco when the climate was quite different.
