The Jewish quarter is of interest with its own market only open once a week, very small, and the cemetery is at the end of this area. The graves span several centuries separated woman children and men with few inscriptions. It is of note that...More

The staff working at the cemetery are incredible. They give you a tour of the history of the cemetery and care so much about what the Jewish people have meant to Marrakech. Try to visit if you can. Truly moving and close to the synagogue.

The largest Jewish cemetery in Morocco covering 52 hectares. Mostly very simple graves that are being painted bright white and only a few have inscriptions. Some untended areas had pretty wildflowers when we visited. A peaceful and very moving place.
