Its an easy visit but all you see are stone slabs that the weather has worn smooth. Its interesting to see them stacked up and to see the whole thing being protected by a Muslim state. But then Morocco is know for letting all faiths...More

Visiting the cemetery, that is situated near the beach, was for me a holy shock! Especially the grave of the rabai haim pinto , that was well known among the jewish morrocan! I stood near the grave asking for blessings!

Only 5 minute outside of the old city walls, the cemetery isn't easy to find but worth it if you do. If you find a door in a wall and knock if it isn't open, a little old lady should let you in. No longer...More

The cemetary reflects the once-large Jewish population of Essaouira who lived harmoniously with the Muslim population. It's not a tourist site, but a piece of the history of Morocco and it's tolerance for all religions.

Jewish heritage is a part of the Moroccan history. It's very impressive. Knock on the door and if you are lucky if its closed someone will let you in. It's a little out of the way but its also worth a visit. I didnt expect...More

I'm not sure what I was seeing and there was nothing or no one there to help me out. It's not easy to find but it is near the Medina. It's old and holds a lot of history but I was not able to share.
