Type and height of existing fence
Parts of the original stone fence has been preserved. About 0.5m high. The fence is damaged and missing in many places.
Preservation condition
Fenced and protected Jewish cemetery
General site condition
Despite the damaged fence, the cemetery is relatively well-kept. There are tombstones and an ohel in the area, as well as two fragments of matzevot.
Number of existing gravestones
135 tombstones and 2 fragments of matzevot. One matzevah was converted into a grinding wheel. The majority of the matzevot are horizontal oriented, which is a sephardic custom – quite rare in this area. They have survived fairly well and in large numbers, however most of them are covered with grass and moss. The walls of the ohel are also damaged.
