Sala Colonia Roman ruins, Chellah, Rabat, Morocco
I have lived all of my life in Australia. Our country has a long and ancient heritage in our Aboriginal history, but nothing in the way of ancient buildings. The Aboriginal rock carvings are often millennia old and totally absorbing as such. Because of their lifestyle, the Australian Aboriginal people did not need to build impressive buildings like we see in Europe, Africa and other parts of the world.
So when we visited Morocco we naturally marvelled at the age of some of the old Roman ruins. Our guides were meticulous in relating the historical significance of places like these Roman ruins of Sala Colonia in Rabat. I was not aware before this of the Roman influence on life in Morocco.
More photos coming tomorrow.
