Aladin in Taroudant: very beautiful and quite expensive ...
It is one of the most beautiful stores of art objects and antiques, more or less old, in the South of Morocco. Installed in the former synagogue of Taroudant, former Saadian capital, Aladdin (sometimes written Aladdin) is in the form of a veritable cave of Ali Baba. Anyone who loves beautiful objects is tempted by the devil at Aladdin.

Les objets proposés par Aladin bénéficient d'un cadre architectural superbe
Un alliage de cuivre, de nickel et de zinc
Toujours sous le sceau de la qualité
On trouve de tout (ou presque) chez Aladin
L'ancien côtoie ici le contemporain
C'est souvent contre-productif !
The prices, we suspect, are high, even very high. Absolutely essential bargaining! And, anyway, we have it for the pleasure of the eyes!
The seal of quality
At Aladin, although part of the stock has found a taker in Marrakech, we find all kinds of ornate decorative objects, vases, lamps, tables, camel skin seats of extreme finesse, an incredible also a reserve of carpets, or even dishes in nickel silver, an alloy of copper, nickel and zinc quite common in Morocco.
Some pieces are very old, others come out of the workshop. They have one thing in common: they are marked with the seal of quality, although the amonites presented are doubtful as to their authenticity.
Please note: the sellers are insistent. It's unpleasant and often counterproductive ... Because who likes to buy under pressure? For this reason, we can be led to give up the purchase of a superb dish of wood and copper ...
The Taroudant Synagogue was decommissioned shortly after Morocco's independence, when indigenous Jews en masse took over Israel. Like all those of Morocco, with the exception of that of Essaouira, the Jewish community of Taroudant is on the verge of extinction. Only vestiges of the strong past imprint remain, such as the old Jewish cemetery which has remained intact, which can be visited near Aladdin. There is indeed always a local on the lookout for the slightest dirham and who will take you there ...
