Quite overrated. I found it to be dilapidated building, with some gold shops. In general I found Morocco to be more of an illusion than real.

This is the old Jewish quarter. You will be taken here by the guide. The architecture is similar to the others here in Morrocco.

They are working on preserving 27,000 Jewish graves. The ones you see here are repaired and painted white. Quite impressive. The other ones, not repaired, they are working on. A must stop.

Morocco is very open about its Jewish heritage, and the sites are generally pretty well kept. Highly recommend the synagogue and cemetery.

Check with your Riad in Fes. This would be the most trusted way of finding out. Some days the street market is closed.
