This Mellah frankly just made me sad. When I visited, it was frilled with rubbish and overgrown with weeds. There is however a good view at the top. Hopefully it will be cleaned up and returned to something that displayes respect for the people buried...More

Nothing special. Just a different shade of Fes in the form of balconies. When in Mellah do check out the Jewish Cemetery. My pick!

We were very interested to see the Mellah, but the Jews are gone and what remains is a bit sad and run down. Disappointing

It's but a shadow of its former self. Once a great Jewish neighborhood (25,000 inhabitants before 1967, now hardly 500) the neighborhood retains interesting-but-rundown remnants and buildings, the cemetery is especially beautiful and moving.

Walking through the Mellah, we received a lot of harassment. Additionally, it was nearly impossible to find any of the synagogues as they were all placed in sketchy back alleys. The one we did find that wasn't in an alley that looked like you could...More

This part of the city is suited for jewellery lovers that are looking for something made-to-measure to buy from the great local craftsmen.

Go with a guide (maybe not one 'from the streets') to lett you get into the cracks of the area. The Mellah itself is not really exciting, jus a bit dull.

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