Have wanted to visit this cemetery for years and finally been, it's a beautiful place and very humbling. The keeper is very keen to discuss the history and will open the little shrine if you want to light a candle.

Worth a visit, some of the graves are beautiful. The cemetery is undergoing renovations so be careful.

Centuries of graves deposited since the Reconquista and subsequent exodus from the Iberian peninsula, this place tells the story.

This is not like cemeteries in London- very plain and the graves of men, women and children are separate. Everything is modest and understated, it feels very foreign and ancient. Also the cemetery quiet, so different from the rest of Marrakesh!

It's in good shape, but only go if you really want to see it and have time. Only a few of the graves are marked and it's pretty homogenous.
