This place is inside the historic city but there is not much to see except if you want to buy some jewellery.

We wandered through this area on a Friday. It was buzzing and great fun, with most of the shops shut, but loads of little stalls and locals everywhere shopping. If like us you like people and places, then wander through and enjoy the vibe. We walked here from the El Bali, and there's plenty to see on the way. However,... More

The Mellah has everything- you can see the Jewish style buildings both before and after restoration. The spice market is amazing, and the cemetery interesting (especially if you have a guide with great stories and explanations).

We visited the Mellah, the old Jewish quarter. The 300 year old Synagogue is in the process of being restored. There is a Torah & Bema. The Jewish Cemetery is amazing. It is 600 years old. The view of the tombs & the surrounding skyline is a great site. This is near the Palace of Fes & the Seven Doors.... More

Having seen the Mellah and the synagoge, we can but appreciate the efforts made to preserve the Jewish history of Fes. The synagoge is well preserved, and the conservator is willing to give the needed information.

This was the first stop when we did a cultural tour in Fez. It was near the King's Palace. It shows how the Jewish people lived centuries ago.
