“Official title - Hay Essalam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

Marrakech's "Jewish Quarter" is of interest for its historical importance and for the presence of the Lazama Synagogue at Place Souweka. The Mellah is located near to the Bahia Palace and adjacent to the Place des Ferblantiers, the old tinsmiths' square. There are gold and silver souks at Rue Riad Zitoun el Djedid ("new olive street"). Some of the best spice and herborist outlets are to be found within the Mellah itself, and there are a plethora of fabric shops too.

“The Jewish quarter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2011

The home of the main spice markets in Marrakech and the gold souks. Great for fabric shopping and just wandering about. You can also visit the synagogue, have a hammam at Ziani, eat lunch or dinner next to the storks by the Kozybar or admire (or buy) at the many metal workshops in Place Ferblantier.
