There are about four rooms set around an open courtyard. There is a synagogue, room featuring music, feating photos, and a decent bathroom. Just go, it's worth it!

This Jewish Cemetary is currently being restored but the size of it takes your breath away. It is worth visiting as your contribution will help with the restoration.

Watch out for helpful kid and "students" who say the synagogue or cemetary is closed, they just want to guide you to a shop to get commision. Visit the synagogue first, you get a map of the area there and interesting inforrmation.

The synagogue and the cemetary are stunning and sobering reminders of the rich history of the jews in morocco in general, and Marrakech in particular. If you get to the synagogue for shabbat services (Friday nightfall, Saturday morning) you get an extra treat.
