So here’s the thing about these tombs, they look nice. They’ve been well restored, and I’m glad he Moroccans are spending money to restore and maintain their historical monuments. The issue I have is that they cost 70Dhs (7€) to enter, and there isn’t really...More

It's a 10 - 15 walk from the main mosque just past the main square. Pretty reasonably priced to see the main tombs which are spectacular and you can take photos behind a roped off area. The rest of the place is grounds which are...More

After looking at these buildings you get a sense of the majesty of this dynasty. The intricate work of the tiles and painting is amazing.

50Drh (5€) to enter. There is no sign to explain what you are looking at so you should do your homework before you get there. But the building and the architecture are great

Go early before the crowds. The wait is not too bad but hot during the day as there’s limited shade in the queue to see the tombs. Incredible workmanship and history at this site.

I was totally blown away by this place! The architecture and carvings throughout but mainly in the main tomb were mind blowing! You cannot enter the main tomb though, instead you have to line up to view it a couple of people at a time...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.
