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 tanneries were so interesting and it was incredible to think that this old method of leather production still exists.

Be prepared to feast your eyes on the leather goods for sale. We didn't experience hard selling but we did buy a couple of items!

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

This section of Fez used to be the old Jewish Quarter. Very few, if any, are still there as most have left for the US or Israel.

Cemetery is very interesting, and our guide took us into a beautiful synagogue. The architecture here is different, interesting visit to see the difference between the Jewish and Arab sections.

It's a cemeterry. And not a particularly interesting one. Good way to practice your Hebrew reading. Good that it's on the way to something or would get few visitors.
