The cemetery is huge and well kept. The entry is quite emotional since we see right away a sea of small children tombs who died from the plague centuries ago. A must to see in Marrakech.

It is possible to roam the cemetery and note the names and dates of those who are buried here. Be sure to ask questions of the attendant at the front entrance.

Have wanted to visit this cemetery for years and finally been, it's a beautiful place and very humbling. The keeper is very keen to discuss the history and will open the little shrine if you want to light a candle.
