Volubilis is a partly excavated amazigh then Roman city in Morocco situated near Meknes between Fes and Rabat. UNESCO listed Volubilis as a World Heritage Site in 1997
The ruins remained substantially intact until they were devastated by an earthquake in the mid-18th century and subsequently looted by Moroccan rulers seeking stone for building Meknes.
The Arch of Caracalla is one of Volubilis' most distinctive sights, situated at the end of the city's main street, the Decumanus Maximus. Although it is not architecturally outstanding, the triumphal arch forms a striking visual contrast with the smaller Tingis Gate at the far end of the decumanus.
