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.

Again we went here with a tour guide. I didn't recognise the tombs at first as they are like mosaics in the ground. There is a lot of architecture here and is worth going with a guide to learn the history within

Very interesting history and beautiful decoration and architecture. Quite a quick visit as it's a small place.

Make sure you look up about the tombs before you go. You won't need much time, but it's so cheap to get in you may as well go and have a look.

I had a guide for a day and a half in Marrakech with an emphasis on history and culture. The tombs were very interesting. I'd advise reading a bit about them before going if you are touring on your own to learn the significance and...More

The Saadian tombs are, as a visit in Marrakech, overrated. Per se, they are very interesting and if you manage to come very early or on a day when there are no queues at the entrance, you will enjoy it. Otherwise you will queue, usually...More

The actual tombs are stunning but there's not much else there and not much interpretation. However, as part of a walking tour of the Medina its good to do.

truly beatifull and often critized for being small. Neverthless, its, in my opinion, the best place to visit near Jemaa el Fnaa

The saadiam tombs tell the history of the city, and country on itself, sadly, there are not a lot of explanations for it. You should go with a guide

Be sure to get a local guide to tell you about the tombs. They are vastly different from those seen in the united states, and thus fascinating to hear about!

We didn't have a guide, but I had downloaded a lot of material on the tombes before we went! This meant we could stroll and read our own English guides whilst taking it all in! Amazing to think of all those beautiful tombes lying hidden...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.
