The Basilica of Volubilis

The ruins of Volubilis are the most important archaeological place of Morocco. 
Them are placed in a great fertile plain.
This is the Basilica of Volubilis, one of the best preserved and known construction of these ancient place.
The Romans conquered the city on year 45 a.C. This Basilica was constructed in the year 217 a.C. in times of the Macrino Emperor, and it was dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva.   
If you go to visit Meknes, you have to go to Volubilis, it is located only at less than 35 min. by car.

As a [ Workshop ] I have post the other side of this magnific Basilica.
