a historical site and the history of Jewish settlement

This place is almost abandoned by Jews. Most of the deteriorated but it is fascinated to watch people living in that neighborhood.

This area is looked after by a lady who tells stories about the Jewish community i Essaouira. It is really interesting to wander around and see some of the remains of the graves.

Just out of the Medinah, next to the Christian Cemetery. Very scenic. A pity there is no text around to tell the history of the place and of the Jews in the city (which we learned of through the guy at the Synagogue).

Here is the tomb of the illustrious Rabbi Haim Pinto, as well as many others. A few of the graves, interestingly, have had their inscriptions worn away so there is a detail-less outline of a human figure with either long or short hair to indicate the gender of the deceased where it is known.
