Many visitors to Fes go to the ancient medina and the modern French town, but most don't seem to visit the Mellah. Situated between the medina and the King's Palace to give a barrier between the often violent people of Fes (in the past, not...More

We had a tour through the Mellah. It is easy to reach and is located close to the Royal Palace and between the new town and the Medina. Ensure you have a pre booked, professional tour guide, as there are many false and misleading operators...More

This section of Fez used to be the old Jewish Quarter. Very few, if any, are still there as most have left for the US or Israel.

Cemetery is very interesting, and our guide took us into a beautiful synagogue. The architecture here is different, interesting visit to see the difference between the Jewish and Arab sections.

Check with your Riad in Fes. This would be the most trusted way of finding out. Some days the street market is closed.
