Some photos of the ancient Roman ruins in Volubilis in northern Morocco, including the basilica, the triumphal arch built in honour of the emperor Caracalla in 217 A.D, some Roman temples and several houses. The ruins were damaged by earthquakes in the 4th and 18th century, while in the 18th century part of the marble was taken for constructions in nearby Meknes.
