The Jewish quarter is worth a visit if you are in the area for a peek to the Royal Palace. It is quite dirty and people as always are chasing you to show the Synagogue and the cemetery.

Near the beautiful gates of the Royal Palace is the Mellah. This is the first Jewish quarter in Morocco and was established in 1438. You know you are in the Mellah when you see the buildings with large balconies. Muslim homes did not have outside...More

The area doesn't differ a lot from the other medinas in Fes. On the outside the houses near the walls of Fez-el-Jedid are typical and there are a lot of jewelry shops. That stands out. But as most Jewish families moved to the modern town...More

Morocco is justifiably proud of the King's commitment to honoring its diverse identity and the country has invested in restoring synagogues and Jewish cemeteries and districts even in the absence of Jewish communities. Worth a look at what's going on in Fez. Get a guide...More

I headed over to the Fez Mellah for my final day in the city, and for a stroll away from the hustle and bustle of the medina which was wearing my mind and patience thin. I do like Fes more when I am out of...More
