Stunning locations mark Morrocan Roman ruins

Most tourists of Roman sites rave about the beauty of Rome or Hadrian's Wall, but most ignore Roman Morocco. In an article for The Star Online, Paul Schemm looks at several Roman sites in Morocco.

The article features Volubilis, once the the westernmost part of an empire, which includes Roman buildings with floor mosaics, a bassilica courthouse and a temple to Jupiter.

Also showcased are Sala Colonia, where the Roman remains are incorporated in a medieval necropolis, and Lixus, "the mythical site of the Garden of Hesperides, from which Hercules had to steal the golden apples for one of his trials."
