This is a very interesting and worthwhile place to visit as this is a Jewish cemetary in the heart of the medina that has been in use for hundreds of years.

Interesting to see a little history of a Fes from a different segment of the community. Beautiful calm place. Get the taxi to drop you next to royal palace and it is to the right of the square....10dh entrance fee and a brief overview which would have been better had we spoken and understood more French!

Not very easy to find but the Synagogue in the Mellah is definitely worth a visit. The room is in good shape and the photos of other synagogues around Morocco are very interesting.

The visit to the cemetery was fascinating. The numerous tombstones texts tell the community's story.

This is the old Jewish sector. The Jews were encouraged to live in the city as they brought commerce and ran businesses to create employment. One side has the better homes for the richer members and the other has housing for the poor

While the neighborhood itself has very little to show, the two highlights are worth the visit. The Synagogue is a well cared example of Moroccan Jewish religious architecture. The cemetery with its mostly white tombs tells a long story of Jewish past (and present) in the city. The eclectic cemetery "museum" contains an untidy collection of belongings, from student's report cards and family pictures, to clothing articles, and helps build a portrait of Jewish life in Morocco in the 50's. Worth a visit.
The doors of the Royal Palace are nearby and great for pictures.

It was very impressive to visit this place, especially the cemetary with the tomb of Sulika. A good place to see the history of Morrocan jews

Not only Jews are taken around the Mellah (synagogue etc.). Moroccans have love and respect for Jewish people and regret that there are very few left in Morocco. The Government makes every effort to preserve ancient Jewish sites.

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.
