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.

Once you know where it is, not difficult to find, but that is usually the case. If you are coming past the Bahia Palace, follow the palace walls around the left until the cemetery walls are in front of you and you see the entrance....More

Centuries of graves deposited since the Reconquista and subsequent exodus from the Iberian peninsula, this place tells the story.
