Let's share some pictures of Morocco that show how places changed during the past.

  • you have to post two pictures taken from the same place, don't post some random pictures of the same city...
  • A little description would be nice (when the photo was taken, names of the places, etc...)

After its rehabilitation it has gained its original look and has become more organized.

Who rebuilt Volubilis ? (I guess french not moroccans)
on sait qu'il la vidé en tous cas ^^

When the Romans withdrew in the third century AD, local tribes continued to inhabit the city into the 17th century, at which time Moulay Ismael destroyed much of Volubilis to scavenge building materials for Meknes. (Wharton, 1920)

^ Ce pillage était tout a fait normal autrefois, il y en avait partout comme l'exemple de Moulay Ismail.

C'est le tremblement de Lisbonne qui a donné le coup finale à Volubilis.

moulay smail non seulement a pillé volubilis mais il a aussi détruit plusieurs monument historiques des dynasties antérieures a Fes et Marrakech l'exemple le plus criant est celui du chef d'œuvre Saadien le palais badia a marrakech

Chefchaouen

We can identify by these two photos two major changes
1. The architecture of the houses | 2. Reforestation on the mount in the background

Earlier 20th century



Today

Ce qui est dommage, c'est l'aspect originale de la ville qui se perd de plus en plus.

On voit bien que le toit en pente à tendance à être remplacé par des toit-terrasses. C'est aussi un symptôme du réchauffement climatique, vu que Chefchaouen connaissaient des épisodes neigeux plus réguliers et intense par le passé.

En Tunisie certains piliers de la mosquée de Kairouan sont issus de vestiges romain. La Zaitouna aussi il me semble.
