This is not like cemeteries in London- very plain and the graves of men, women and children are separate. Everything is modest and understated, it feels very foreign and ancient. Also the cemetery quiet, so different from the rest of Marrakesh!

It's in good shape, but only go if you really want to see it and have time. Only a few of the graves are marked and it's pretty homogenous.

We learned so much from our fabulous guide Mokhtar. He literally brought the cemetery to life for us telling us stories about the Tzadikim and the various families and the plagues that struck the city during various periods of history. It was part of a day tour we had learning about the jewish community in Marrakesh.

An immensely atmospheric and historical and indeed holy place. You will catch a profound flavour of the life of the Jewish people of Marrakesh, whose ancestors go back to Roman North Africa.

Morocco is completely Muslim but you can feel the Jewish influence and heritage in a lot of the different places It is amazing that after centuries it has been preserved and not destroyed It has a great historic value since it is very old, but don't expect large monuments or museums

We didn't find this easy to find and were helped by some locals. However, as we entered we could see what an amazing place it is. There are some fantastic tombs. We have never seen a Jewish Cemetery and it was such an insight to see how other religions bury their loved ones. It is free to enter, however, men... More

Morocco use to have a substantial Jewish community. The cemetery is large with burial sites close together and two levels deep in some areas. The "grounds keeper" gave us a brief history. The cemetery offers a quiet refuge from the hustle of the city. As a male I was requested to wear a head cover.

Hard to find and the area looks quite dangerous.i did not see any historical value. Why do i need to see an old cemetery in the middle of nowhere?

Our Jewish heritage tour stopped by this very old cemetery in Marrakesh. The cemetery is very large with 3600 Jews buried here. Our group found it interesting. You would probably not be interested if you are not Jewish.
