Walking through the Mellah, we received a lot of harassment. Additionally, it was nearly impossible to find any of the synagogues as they were all placed in sketchy back alleys. The one we did find that wasn't in an alley that looked like you could...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

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