Not much different than other poor neighborhoods. Not anything left of Jewish history except the beautiful Lazama synogogue and the very eerie looing cemetary

This is where the Jews of Marrakech lived. Now, there is a very small Jewish community and some abandoned synagogues. However, to walk the streets and imagine what it was like 100 years ago made this a spiritual journey. Definitely see this on your visit...More

The mellah is interesting to visit but a lot like the souks and general Medina. They charge you to enter the Synagogue but we read it was not worth the visit. I don't think it is a must in Marrakech

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.
