“Don’t expect too much of the Royal Palace and the Saadian Tombs”
Feb 15, 2019
“Waste of time”
Although you are not allowed to go inside the palace, it is still interesting to see from the outside from an architectural and historical standpoint. Plus, you’ll get a breather from the hustle and bustle of the center of town.

Wasn’t impressed and a waste of time. Wasn’t what I imagined st all. We were in and out in 5 mins. It was just walls and concrete wall.

The palace is basically empty, as all furnitures were taken away after the royals left the building. Just a nice garden is worth seeing. As for the Saadian Tombs, there’s no information in English, and nothing really impressive if you have been to similar places...More

There aren't that many attractions in Marrakesh so during the busy season they all get very crowded, especially with tour groups. We went in right as they opened and kept ahead of soon-to-follow tour groups. This enabled us to get great pictures of all of...More

We saw the place on the way to the Atlas Mountains, unfortunately you can only see walls and palm trees which are outside. The place is not open to tourists or anyone local to visit.
