  • Nicely preserved historical icon. Hard to find because it's not well marked but the locals will happily guide you there.
  • It's a beautiful place to visit very spiritual I loved it
  • Mediocre at best, I don't understand the good ratings, nice architecture but the tour is given by a man that has no idea about the history of the place and doesn't speak English, you can see toys around the place like if there is a family living there, they said we could go to the terrace, which is just the roof of the place with clothes hanging around. Not worth the 20 dirham.
  • Historic synagogue in the Fes Mellah (Jewish quarter) of the city. The community has largely disappeared from the city but the building is preserved and maintained.
  • It does not justify the trip to the Jewish quarter. But if you are there, the visit is interesting.
