Fez Mellah (Jewish Quarter) Tours and Activities

Fez Mellah (Jewish Quarter)
Established in 1438, the Fez Mellah (Jewish Quarter) was the first of its kind in Morocco, a walled Jewish quarter that segregated the Jewish community from the predominant Muslim communities, and was locked during the evening hours to ensure the safety of its residents.

After WWII, the majority of Fez’s Jewish population left, with the quarter’s schools, synagogues and markets falling into disrepair, but a small, yet vibrant Jewish community still remains and the district is being slowly restored thanks to UNESCO funds. For visitors, a walk around the mellah offers a glimpse into one of Fez’s most unique neighborhoods, with contrasting architectural styles to the rest of the old medina.  Highlights include the newly restored Ibn Dahan synagogue, which dates back to the 17th-century, the Jewish Cemetery and the Gold souk, as well as a number of quality antique furniture stores.

Practical Info

Fez Mellah (Jewish Quarter) is located in the south of the Fez Medina (Fez el-Bali), close to the Royal Palace. 
Address: Mellah, Fez, Morocco

I love to show tourists our historical sights and attractions, but most of all, l love to tell them why they are important, to relate relevant stories and events to these sights. I like to capture their attention and make them feel as though they are part of the story. l have met tourists from all parts of the world , which helped me discover and understand their cultures, traditions, and customs. It taught me how to deal with them with courtesy and respect. Tourists come to visit our country to have an enjoyable time; Equipped with a fluency in English, a good knowledge of history and a fair sense of humour, I feel it's my duty to help them achieve that goal and make sure their Fes tour with me is FEScinating.

No more. A wave of luxury hotels and design-minded restorations of crumbling riads, as well as an innovative food scene, is enhancing its unique identity and putting it on the map even more.
