Owner description: The Saadian Tombs are located just outside Marrakech and were constructed during the reign of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur in the late 16th century. This is the resting place of al-Mansur, his family, and other notable officials from that era. These tombs were discovered in 1917; restoration began shortly thereafter. Today, much of its original splendour has been restored.

“dont go out of your way to find them”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I must be missing something.
If you have to go, you will do it in 10 minutes.
Its just a load of mosiacs on the floor with some nice buildings.
When you come out eat in kasbah cafe across road.

“Most exquisite decoration in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Peaceful, beautiful setting. The tiling and carving are both exceptional, even pipping that in the Ben Youssef Madrassa. The garden is also nicely laid out with vibrant flowering bushes.

“Pleasant, no more”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

This is not really a spectacular place, only one really beautifull room you must see.
It's worth the price of admission but if you run out of time, don't worry that you missed it.

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Wonderful mosaics and architecture. Worth a half hour visit as part of a trip to central marrakech. we got some nice photos. Easy to get to main square, souks and markets so would recommend combining with other trips. Wouldn't recommend a long visit as quite small and doesn't take long to see everything.
