The Mellah has everything- you can see the Jewish style buildings both before and after restoration. The spice market is amazing, and the cemetery interesting (especially if you have a guide with great stories and explanations).

The view of the tombs & the surrounding skyline is a great site. This is near the Palace of Fes & the Seven Doors.... More

Having seen the Mellah and the synagoge, we can but appreciate the efforts made to preserve the Jewish history of Fes. The synagoge is well preserved, and the conservator is willing to give the needed information.

A different vibe from the old Fes Medina. Great place to shop other kind of stuff. Visit one of the several Synagogues

This was the first stop when we did a cultural tour in Fez. It was near the King's Palace. It shows how the Jewish people lived centuries ago.

We were wondering around before someone claiming to live in the area offered to show us to the synagogue. He claimed to be Jewish but when we later said we were Muslim he said he was that too. He spoke lovingly about the two communities and showed us the graveyard from a rooftop where he insisted we pay the residents... More

We visited the mellah on our own after taking a taxi from Place R'cif for 15 dirhams. We walked in to neighborhood, walked a minute or two to the cemetery gate, paid ten dirhams to the cemetery guard (who we weren't exactly sure should have been paid, but we weren't interested in dithering), and explored the names. There were many... More

The information provided on the booking site we used about the Riad we booked was completely untrue. There was NO minibar, hot tub, balcony, fan, washing machine, patio, dressing room, kitchen, private entrance or soundproofing as described for the suite we booked. This is no reflection on the booking site. People here have no problem lying to you ... About... More

Remember, there are hardly any Jews left in Fez, so the Mellah is not a Jewish quarter anymore and there is little left that is actually Jewish. Go to the Ibn Danan synagogue.
