After visiting Volubilis, you’ll head to the city of Meknes, which was once the capital of Morocco. Meknes is famous for its impressive gates, walls, and palaces, and it’s considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Morocco. One of the must-see sights in Meknes is the Heri es-Souani, a massive stable that was once used to house the horses of the sultan.

We will explore the beautiful medina and admire its magnificent doors and walls with monumental doors dating from the seventeenth century, including Berdaïne Bab, Bab Khemis.
From Meknes, you’ll continue on to Moulay Idriss Zerhoun, a small town that is home to the tomb of Moulay Idriss, the founder of the first Arab dynasty in Morocco.

The tomb is housed in a beautiful mosque and it’s a peaceful place to reflect and to pay your respects to the great leader.
Stopping at the mausoleum of Moulay Ismail, which was for a long time the only mosque that non-Muslims can visit in Morocco, then leave it at the famous Bab Mansour El gate on the vast Hedim square. On the other side of the square, the Moroccan art museum “Dar Jamai” offers a wide variety of handicrafts.
