You can't help but walk around history. Famous rabbis, simple jews and a sense of a glorious past, when people of different faiths lived together in peace. Be careful, it is not easy to find, the people who show you they way will ask for...More

The staff working at the cemetery are incredible. They give you a tour of the history of the cemetery and care so much about what the Jewish people have meant to Marrakech. Try to visit if you can. Truly moving and close to the synagogue.

Leaning towards being Jewish (but not big on the subject) and being in Morocco is a very comfortable feeling. The Jews were there a very long time ago and integrated into the society so, we chose to visit the old Jewish Cemetery. It was really...More

Hidden behind red clay walls the sight of the Miaara Cemetery is a revelation, it’s vast field of whitewashed tombs, unique in design, a reminder of the size of and power exerted by Morocco’s Jewish community. So many may have returned to the Holy Land...More

The largest Jewish cemetery in Morocco covering 52 hectares. Mostly very simple graves that are being painted bright white and only a few have inscriptions. Some untended areas had pretty wildflowers when we visited. A peaceful and very moving place.

This is a huge Cemetery. It is currently being restored after years of neglect. The resorted graves are bright white. When we visited, you could see the state of disrepair of the older tombs. 10 dirham to get in. Worth a visit.

If you're wandering the streets of the Mellah (the former Jewish quarter), visit the Lazama Synagogue and the cemetary (both of which cost 10 dirhams to enter). The cemetary will astound you with its size. A unique feature is the graves of 7,000 children who...More
