Volubilis is an ancient Berber city, then Romanized, located in the Saïss plain in Morocco, on the banks of the Wadi Rhoumane, a river in the suburbs of Meknes, not far from the holy city of Moulay Driss Zerhoun where Idriss Iᵉʳ rests, founder of the Idrissid dynasty.
During Roman times, Volubilis was a major producer of olive oil. The remains of buildings dedicated to olive pressing are still readily visible, as are the remains of the original presses and olive mills.
Just outside the walls of the city, on the floodplain of the Oued Khoumane, was found a series of interlocking courtyard buildings, of which the largest contained a hammam, or bath. This is an L-shaped structure, with a cold room paved with flagstones and benches running along the sides.
