We walked over to this area and were going to do it on our own but were approached by a man who said he could guide us. At first we told him "no" but after venturing a block into the Mellah we realized that it...More

Go with a guide (maybe not one 'from the streets') to lett you get into the cracks of the area. The Mellah itself is not really exciting, jus a bit dull.

Very interesting to see the history of cultures and religious groups that were important to the trade in early centuries.

Many visitors to Fes go to the ancient medina and the modern French town, but most don't seem to visit the Mellah. Situated between the medina and the King's Palace to give a barrier between the often violent people of Fes (in the past, not...More

We had a tour through the Mellah. It is easy to reach and is located close to the Royal Palace and between the new town and the Medina. Ensure you have a pre booked, professional tour guide, as there are many false and misleading operators...More

What a different and amazing side of Fez you will see in the Mellah. The architecture of the houses is dramatically different and they have Windows looking out to the streets along with large wooden balconies for sitting outside and overlooking the streets. The streets...More

The mellah as a whole was interesting -- the balconies on architecture for the first time, for example. But the highlight of the district is the Jewish cemetery, which has a "museum" inside that is more like a huge yard sale or estate sale of...More

While this is not a 'must see', it is worth a half hour to see inside the synagogue and the beautiful furnishings inside. I know little of Jewish-Fes history, but I find it significant, during this time of accusing Islam of terrible things, that the...More

Reading reviews of the old tannery I was expecting a terrible smell and took the mint leaves from the man at the entrance fully expecting the worst. Perhaps the wind was blowing the smell in another direction because, to me, it was barely noticeable. The...More

Somewhat interesting neighborhood with balconies and ironwork but far more interesting sights in the medina. If pressed for time you can skip the mellah.

Check with your Riad in Fes. This would be the most trusted way of finding out. Some days the street market is closed.
