If you're wandering the streets of the Mellah (the former Jewish quarter), visit the Lazama Synagogue and the cemetary (both of which cost 10 dirhams to enter). The cemetary will astound you with its size. A unique feature is the graves of 7,000 children who...More

Watch out for helpful kid and "students" who say it is closed, they just want to guide you to a shop to get commision. A remarkable place to see, visit the synagogue also. Lots of info there and nice to see.

Quite close to all the other attractions, but very quiet. Quite spooky, really. Definitely worth a look - and some good views of the Atlas in the background.

The cemetery is huge and well kept. The entry is quite emotional since we see right away a sea of small children tombs who died from the plague centuries ago. A must to see in Marrakech.

It is possible to roam the cemetery and note the names and dates of those who are buried here. Be sure to ask questions of the attendant at the front entrance.
