Travel to Meknes
Founded in the 11th century Meknes in Northern Morocco was once the capital city during the reign of Moulay Ismail (1672–1727).
One of the main attractions is the 17th-century imperial headquarters of Moulay Ismael, a fortified city-within-a-city containing several palaces, mosques, dungeons and gardens, and one of very few holy places that non-Muslims are allowed to enter.
Visitors staying in Meknes can easily take tours to the ruins of the Roman city of Volubilis, once the furthest outpost of the Roman Empire.
