Vast, open and peaceful - the contrast to the rest of the Melaa could not be greater. You will be approached by youths wanting to show you the way but it is easy enough to find. The synagogue is unspectacular but histrically also worthing seeing.

We sought out the Jewish cemetery. Very large site. Unusual and interesting graves, row upon row. Also the Rabbi's tombs for each era. Some very recent graves, it is still in use.

To stand there and witness such a location was quite evocative when coming from the hustle and bustle of the city. I presume that not too many tourists visit, only saw one other couple there. To just see this large area of Jewish tombstones from different eras, including a few to recent times. Being none Jewish I had taken my... More

We visited the cemetry as we had been to the synagogue nearby and it was quite fascinating. Worth popping in and a few dirahms for the guards.

Take a trip to the Jewish cemetery and sit down and chill out with a pair of bins. The place is fairly overgrown but good for birds. Larks/Barbary partridge,Bulbul,Kestrel and House Bunting. Groundsman also said little owls hide in the walls. storks fly over regularly.

This is a burial place, absolutely not like we westerners are used to. The burial place started around 15hundred. So graves of that period are still there and you can follow the fashions changing in time. The toombs are very close to one another and are placed completely without any order. To prevent the toombs from decaying, they are cemented.... More

Near El badii and la Bahia. Don't follow the 'friendly guides' at the medina, easy to find through the big gates. Free entrance, donation appreciated.

A huge space filled with capped graves, punctuated with tombs of great rabbis. The back wall is filled with elaborate mausoleums, particularly from the French Protectorate period. Powerful. (It is also free; donations accepted of course.)

Keppel for men mandatory (available there), women should bring a scarf to cover their hair. When we were there there was a man who gave us interesting information about the cemetery.
