The Mellah was the Jewish Quarter. The Jews lived just outside the palace walls in nice apartments with cedar balconies. Some of them even had a view of the palace gardens. The families lived upstairs and had workshops on the ground level. When the Jews were forced out of Spain in the 14th Century, they were welcomed in Morocco. Many were employed at the palace. Centuries later, their descendants moved to Israel.
