Overview

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.

Came here on a tour, some lovely tombs. Worthwhile a visit if you are in the area but read up on the history or get a guide.

These tombs do deserve a visit. They are located outside the Medina, about 15 minutes walk from the main mosque. The cared plasters and woods are simply beautiful, a jewel worth a stop and several good pictures.

A must see to understand the ancient history about Marrakech. A small well kept site but of great importance.

A little hard to get to (there is a side street you must go down) with not a lot of pay off. One interesting rooms, but nothing spectacular that you won’t see elsewhere. Looks better in the pictures.

This is a very busy tourist attraction so unfortunately the lines may be long and your time poking your head in to see the exquisite architecture and tombs is much too short. But that said it was worth it.

All the busloads of tourists do the tombs and the Bahia Palace because they're accessible by bus. The tombs are exquisite but there is little chance of hushed comtemplation amid the hoardes.

Arrived early due to previous comments about queues. 10dhm to enter per person. We were there about 8.30am but said it wasn’t open until 9am. Not a busy time which was great. Queues had started to see the main room. You feel like you had...More

This is a worthwhile stop on your tour of the Medina. Beautiful architecture and not very time consuming.

Another example of the geometrical architecture and mastery in mosaic. The Saadian tombs are beautiful.

Had to queue for like 20 mins just to see the main room. Maybe I came at a busy time. A couple of cats were guarding’ the tombs. Not very interesting. The story is charming but you can only really look at several tombs which...More

Hello - the tombs are visited by many visitors so I would imagine that it's open at least 10-4, but I can't be sure.
