The area has gone through a lot of reconstruction and some buildings have even been knocked down. What has emerged is a more easily accessible neighbourhood still with original character. The storks nesting on the ramparts of the square haven't luckily been disturbed, the ironmongery...More

The jewish synagogue is one of the oldest places in this area. There is a little museum and an entrance fee at 20drhms i think. Not much to see there though, so maybe strolling around the Area is a better alternative. You will find several...More

A little dodgy seeming, but my interactions with the locals were so warm and pleasant! Check out the Synagogue, wander the twisting labyrinth and see the sights - plenty to explore in this part of Marrakech.

Our tour guide brought us into the Mellah to visit the Lazama Synagogue - a hidden gem and one of the few visible remnants left of the Jewish community. The synagogue is beautiful and has a great story to tell as you wander through it.

We found the Jewish Quarter to be our favourite part of Marrakech. The people were much more laid back here, and seemed friendlier and not as pushy as the main Medinas of Marrakech. The spice market is a great little excursion (although I'm not sure...More

Hi! I would like to visit the Lazama Synagogue in the Mellah on April 17th 2017. However, I discovered that it is still Pesach (Passover) on this date and I have read somewhere that the synagogue is closed on Jewish holidays. Does anybody know if the Lazama Synagogue is open at April 17th 2017?
