Fez to Volubilis and Meknes day trip will take us to the twin brother of Fez as well as the roman roots of Morocco. The current dynasty built Meknes as their very first capital in their early days. It was the first capital of unified Morocco after centuries of chaos. The walls surrounding it were designed to sustain cannons attacks unlike other medinas. In its times, Meknes was the strongest fortification in all of North Africa. The famous gate Bab Mansour was a sign of defiance to European powers as a Portuguese captive designed it. This captive served as the architect of the Sultan Moulay Ismail also designing the Sahrij Souani Bassin and the underground prison. These last monuments were in full action in times of war. Then we will visit the Mulay Ismail Mausoleum the founder of the city. After lunch, our journey continues to Volubilis. This Roman city dates back to the 25BC. Some of it original mosaics are very well preserved. Moulay Idriss, the village holding the Mausoleum of the very first Muslim Sultan in Morocco, Moulay Idriss I, will be a part of our visit. and then we back to fez city.
