About Meknes

The history of Meknes dates back to the days of the Roman Empire. It used to be originally a fortress. In the 10th century this area was settled by Berber tribes. Meknes was founded in the 11th century AD as a military outpost. In the following centuries the city was experiencing unprecedented prosperity mainly due to Sultan Ismail. The traditional architecture is combined with elements of European architecture, which made the city even more important.
