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

Watch out for helpful kid and "students" who say it is closed, they just want to guide you to a shop to get commision. A remarkable place to see, visit the synagogue also. Lots of info there and nice to see.

Quite close to all the other attractions, but very quiet. Quite spooky, really. Definitely worth a look - and some good views of the Atlas in the background.

A very interesting cemetry which dates back to the 1700 - as you enter you were faced with small graves of the children who died in the plague - met a young gentleman from Israel who filled us in on the Jewish traditions which was...More
