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.

It doesn't take long to see this place, but it is most interesting - we had some info with us which served to illuminate the history etc, which is quite fascinating (as is Moroccan history in general).

I am glad I went as it was beautiful and tile work amazing. It is small--only 30 minutes to see--but heavily crowded with tour groups. Felt very touristy. Outside entrance very pushy people selling bracelets and trinkets--they were rude and shouting at the tourists.

There were some very beautiful ceilings and mosaics but without a book or guide difficult to work out what was what . Besides this well worth a visit.

Worth seeing the graves of the Saadian dynasty. A calm oasis in downtown Marekesh. Nice place to visit away from the crowds

For 10Dh well worth the visit. Amazing architecture. Avoid big groups and enjoy a very serene rewarding experience. Would definitely go again - even just to soak up the atmosphere.

Well worth us taking tiem to look for this twice. It is not very well signposted for the poor tourist to find but well worththe cheap entrance fee. Stunning tiling and carving and it won't take you long to visit.

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.
