Great jewelleries

The jewelleries in this area have a unique know-how so I went here to repair some of my jewels and it was done perfectly.

The mellah quarter (not talking about the graveyards here) is a nice place for a little walk, when you happen to be in the neighbourhood.

The Jewish Quarter of Fes borders the royal palace of the king and was once home of a very large Jewish population. Today, the Jewish population is much smaller, and the quarter has gone into decline. There is some good shopping to be done here, and there is a fine old Jewish cemetery to visit. The tombs are raised above... More

We did like the handmade jewellery and the cute litlle boutiques but there are much better things to visit in Fez like the historical buildings in the medina.

We wanted to visit the Mellah but were unsure of which way to go when we were approached by a helpful young man who took us on a circuitous rout finally to the synagogue and a view from there of the cemetery. It is a shame how dilapidated -almost ruins- the general area is. It clearly has not benefited from... More

The houses in Rue Des Merrindes were nice with balconies. Had difficulties finding IBN Danan Synagogue and the cemetery and had to rely on Local to find them. Paid 200 dirham each to visit the Synagogue and view the cemetery from the roof . Worth the visit.

Mellah in Hebrew is king. The Jewish cemetery was very fascinating from the history of the rich and dynamic Jewish community that was Fes but not only Morocco. The quarter is just a skeleton of what existed pre 1948.

This place is inside the historic city but there is not much to see except if you want to buy some jewellery.

We wandered through this area on a Friday. It was buzzing and great fun, with most of the shops shut, but loads of little stalls and locals everywhere shopping. If like us you like people and places, then wander through and enjoy the vibe. We walked here from the El Bali, and there's plenty to see on the way. However,... More

It was really tough to communicate as Noone understands English well enough and took us a good hour before we finally reached where we wanted to after stutters and false starts and almost giving up..turns out ..mellah is within one of the cryptic lanes within the pulsating and throbbing market and as we vend our way further through it ..we...
