Owner description: 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.

We stood in the hot sun for about an hour to see this. It was just ok. There is so much else that doesn't have a line, I would have definitely skipped it had I known.

We enjoyed the novel experience of such a large collection of tombs. The line into the main hall was very long, so we didn't go; I'm sure it would have added even more. It was interesting to learn how to tell the Moslem tombs from the Jewish ones.

We paid dirhams, walked around for 5 minutes, took photos for a further 5, then waited 10 to see the main tomb (pictured in the photos above). Then we moved on!

If you like to visit tombs..give this a go. Not the highlight of the holiday, but worth seeing. Get there early in the morning and avoid the crowds..
