About Mellah, Marrakesh

A visit to this old Jewish neighborhood would be a great way to experience life in Marrakesh as a local, away from the touristy areas. Once a thriving colony of Jewish traders, it is now in a dilapidated state. Even so, it is easy to imagine the everyday life of Jews in this neighborhood that has more or less remained the same through the years.

Your local guide will be able to arrange for a visit to the synagogue and other places of interest in the area. You will be able to buy spices and other silver souvenirs at better prices than rest of Marrakech here.
