if you want to see how leather is treated then you have to visit this place. It smells terrible but a very good experience.

“Good to visit!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

You might just as well, it was interesting to see where the Jews live and their place of worship. It's a shady neighborhood with narrow alleys, dirty and smelly. There were a lot of tourist when we were there in the courtyard and in the church, must have been an important day or something for the Jews.

“Nothing special...”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Not worth the visit. The Mellah in Marrakech is dirty, overrun with cats and homeless people however the temple (with a mikve) in the Mellah is interesting.

“Spice market”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Stumbled across the Mellah on a walk out. Got toalking to the owner and a server very knowledgable about their wares and football! Given a very nice mint tea on the first visit and a herb tea on the second visit. If you want spices this is the place to go. They also have an email address.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

The synagogue is hidden away on a back street. It is worth a look and has an interesting collection of Sephardic Judaica. Other than than the synagogue there was very little evidence of a Jewish presence here.
