Avoid the young guy just outside the synagogue!

If you go to visit the synagogue first make sure you don't get into conversation with the young guy seated just outside the synagogue and telling about his family's history... read more

Miaara monument is actually the Jewish cemetery, located in the Jewish area. Not of special interest in my opinion, so we preferred stroll further in the Jewish block.

If you go to visit the synagogue first make sure you don't get into conversation with the young guy seated just outside the synagogue and telling about his family's history related to the synagogue etc. As we were going to visit the cemetery as well, he just nicely offered to show us the way there as he was going same...

Unlike burrial grounds for Muslims in Marrakech that are closed for Non-Muslims, the Jewish cemetary is open to all, though not on Saturdays (Sabbath). They insist on a 'voluntary' donation and check what you put into the box. Most of the graves look similar to the ones in Muslim cemetaries. Many look the same. Only more recently there seems to...

Once you know where it is, not difficult to find, but that is usually the case. If you are coming past the Bahia Palace, follow the palace walls around the left until the cemetery walls are in front of you and you see the entrance. Men are to cover their head, and cloth caps are available. Officially, there is no... More

Centuries of graves deposited since the Reconquista and subsequent exodus from the Iberian peninsula, this place tells the story.

This is not like cemeteries in London- very plain and the graves of men, women and children are separate. Everything is modest and understated, it feels very foreign and ancient. Also the cemetery quiet, so different from the rest of Marrakesh!

It's in good shape, but only go if you really want to see it and have time. Only a few of the graves are marked and it's pretty homogenous.

We learned so much from our fabulous guide Mokhtar. He literally brought the cemetery to life for us telling us stories about the Tzadikim and the various families and the plagues that struck the city during various periods of history. It was part of a day tour we had learning about the jewish community in Marrakesh.

An immensely atmospheric and historical and indeed holy place. You will catch a profound flavour of the life of the Jewish people of Marrakesh, whose ancestors go back to Roman North Africa.
