Stop At: Mellah, Marrakech Morocco

The town’s small alleyways were once home to the city’s Jewish community, as evidenced by buildings such as the Lazama Synagogue, which has a tiled courtyard and exhibits on Jewish life, and the quiet Miaara Jewish Cemetery. The bustling Mellah market, which sells meat and fruit, and the Bab Mellah spice souk are also nearby. You can learn more about herbs and spices if you wish when you visit an herbalist. The area is dotted with European-style cafes, Moroccan restaurants, offering grills and tajines.

Stop at: Slat Al Azama Synagogue, Derb Saka, Marrakech 40000 Morocco

Salat al-azamat, like other synagogues built in Morocco, is located in the Mellah and was built around 1492 to serve the Jewish community. It was erected around a central courtyard, and it was a model of traditional architecture. It was only recently renovated: an erzat nachim (women’s gallery) was added to the eastern wall, and the typically movable wooden arch was replaced by a marble arch lining the eastern wall.

Stop at: Miaara Jewish Cemetery, Avenue Taoulat Miara Mellah, Marrakech Morocco

The Jewish cemetery of Miaara, located in the Mellah district, testifies to the long history of Marrakech as a Jewish community. This large space, more than 500 years old, presents burials of basic appearance and of variable sizes, dated from several centuries to a few years. On the left, a slew of anonymous graves testify to the epidemics that ravaged the city, requiring hasty burials.
