  • The visit of this synagogue is absolutely irrelevant. Beyond the fact that it is 10 m by 10 m and it can be visited in 6min30sec, the place is completely run down. The synagogue may be filled with history, his condition does not deserve that we care. As I have read in another review, treat yourself rather a good tea with Mint.

  • The entrance to the synagogue is worth 20 dirhams per person. Mini tour conducts local grandparent, which shows the Torah (of leather Gazelle), holds the "hamamu" (for ablutions before prayer?) in the basement, shows the path to the terrace from which you can see the Jewish cemetery. As it turned out later, the synagogue was not valid, because the Jews in Fez is almost gone. Ordinary people live in the building, and on the way to the terrace you pass through someone's kitchen and child. However, it is quite an interesting place.
