The Saadian Tombs were only discovered about a hundred years ago after being walled up by the sultan Moulay Ismail hundreds of years ago. They are magnificent...quiet, lovely, peaceful. The lighting and the architecture is truly photo worthy. The cost of admission is minimal...however, it is true that there is no information about what you are seeing when you are there...no brochures, no signage, so it helps if you take your guide book with you. Also, if when you get there there is a long line to see the kings' tombs just wait it out...go see the queens' tombs first or just sit and admire the cats and the quiet. That long line will disappear, and since all you do at the end of the line is to stand in a doorway and look it is best if you can wait until no one is behind you if you want to stay for a bit or take pictures. One other fun thing about this spot is that it is walkable from the Jmaa el Fna....takes a little navigating but you can do it and you get to see parts of Marrakech that most tourists don't. Also admire the stork's nest on the roofs around the tombs!
