It's only a short petite taxi ride away, and you can visit the Jewish cemetery, the synagogue, and you can see how different live was for the Jewish women, who were allowed to show their face in public, as evidenced by the balconies on the exterior of the buildings

OK interesting and the buildings a bit different from the Muslim quarter but so what? Spend an hour and move on.

Though you dont find any Jews here, its still has a specific atmosphere as the houses with balconies are so different from the typical medina architecture, and the Ibn Dayan synagogue together with the Jewish cemetery are two hidden jewels.

A really nice place to visit...Dont take your camera out around some of the old ruins, as security dont allow it, I nearly had mine taken off me.

got conned by the cementery guard, gave him 200 dirhams, waiting for my change , said I only gave him twenty, when I started arguing, he called his friends , who started sorrounding me, i took off quickly.
there's nothing much to see, the museum was ok, the temple a joke, and the whole Mellah was dangerous, only sold cheap electronics and Chinese made shoes, etc.
don't even bother, specially if you are a woman traveller.
