Description:

The Saadian Tombs are located just outside Marrakech and were constructed...

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.

Lovely visit but doesn't take very long to walk around. Research beforehand if you go without a guide as there is little information at the site.

I don't thing i did my research as this was a waste of time for us. we spent roughly 5 mins and walked out nothing to see or do, very misleading. Most of the grounds were broken and poorly kept . i would not recommend.

We stopped here as part of our tour with a guide (which we would highly recommend to anyone in Marrakech for their first time). It is very cheap at 10 Dirhams per person and worth a walk through. Our guide was able to go through the history around the king and how the burial traditions within the site as well... More

Thanks to previous reviews I had found out about the tombs before visiting. As others have said, there is very little info once inside, tho guides are often around. Pretty architecture but doesn't take long to visit. Only 10dh entry - less than £1 so worth popping in if you are nearby.

There's not very much to see though there are 900-odd tombs of different sizes and shapes to see. Some elaborate carvings like everywhere in Morocco.

We had a guide to explain the tombs, not sure how interesting if would be without one. The tombs themselves are tiles on the floor but it's the structures that have been built over them that are stunning. Take a camera.

Interesting sight. Worth reading up about the history etc behind the tombs. But very small. Looking around will only take 10-15 mins. Not the end of the world if you miss this as part of your itinerary.

A little out of the way so you could easily walk past. 10 dirham entrance fee (less that £1) so worth going in for a look around. Quite small inside but nice to see and tick of the list.
