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.

Worth a visit! Very little English, but the guards are super friendly and put up with my horrible broken arabic nicely! The synagog next to the cemetery is pretty too!

I can see by looking at photos of this cemetery it is like the one in Berlin - except older- so I... More

We checked this place out on our journey out of Essaouira. Tranquil, though we were fortunate to get let in by the person who runs it. Would be nice to spend more time here, and get a better look around.
