Moulay Ismaïl turned Meknes into an imperial city in the 17C and it is him we have to thank for its finest buildings - on the same scale as the sultan's overweening ambitions. The imperial city, which boasts superb vestiges, stretches south from the medina, animated by relentless bustle in the craftsmen's souks. Meknes is a gem on the east-west axis stretching between Fez and Rabat, and is also just 30km from the Roman site of Volubilis.
