Another wonderful place to wander around and explore. Get off the Main Street and head for the local market ... different in the morning to the afternoon and different again in the evening. Well worth various hours of visit.

The synogogue built in the 1600's, by itself, justifies the trip. Learning about the history of the Jewish people in Morocco was a huge surprise to me. I have been to the mellah twice and recommend it.

This is a very old Jewish cemetary in Marrakech in the Jewish Quarter. We had a member on our tour who's father is buried here. It is a large cemetary and makes the statement that once there was a very large Jewish population in Morocco.

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