It's a cemeterry. And not a particularly interesting one. Good way to practice your Hebrew reading. Good that it's on the way to something or would get few visitors.

It is interesting but there are better places to visit in Fez historical area to visit in fez. It is interesting if you wish to see jewels.

The Mellah is only about a 10 minute walk from the Blue Gate but the architecture and feel is very different to the Medina. The area is generally in a poor state of repair and the offers from " guides " are far more aggressive...More

The Mellah is the old Jewish Quarter and has a really different feel to the Medina. The roads are wider and the architecture more outward looking. The shop keeps seem approachable and honest. The guys selling dates have really good produce.

The Fez Mellah is in very poor condition, but worth seeing. The old synagogue has been repaired and a lovely young woman gave us a tour. The old houses with balconies, the Rabbi's house, are all standing but in decayed condition--Unesco needs to step in...More

Check with your Riad in Fes. This would be the most trusted way of finding out. Some days the street market is closed.
Did you go here yourself or did you have a guide? We will be in Fez on a group trip but have free time and would like to see Jewish sites.
