Morocco – Volubilis in the rain

They were in the midst of a drought in Morocco but we caught the only rain they had when we visited Volubilis.

Volubilis was an important Roman town near Meknes dating back to the 3rd century. There are great ruins and mosaics. One wonders how magnificent it would have been before they stripped it of its bronze and marble statues and took the bulk of the columns off to build a mosque.

What was left was still impressive.

You can see the Stork’s nest on top of one of the columns.
