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.

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

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.

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