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.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Worth a visit and you can go on your own rather than book with hotel reps tour. It does get rather hot in the afternoons, so make the trip am.

“Quiet respite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Nice place for a tile afficionado, watching artisans restore work in the old, precise ways. Seeing the storks in their nests, enjoying the quiet within the walls, relaxing break from the rest of Marrakech.

“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

For the small entrance fee, this little oasis is a pleasant surprise. Great architecture and interesting to admire the differences between Arab and western tombs.

“Nice workmanship.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Mildly interesting. There are no names on any of the tombs. The workmanship on the walls and ceilings are lovely.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Especially if you are in the neighborhood already for the Bahia Palace or the Badi Palace. For 10 dh only, you get to see some nicely decorative rooms and a fair garden. Be aware that the tombs closes rather early (around 4:30 pm). We end up having to come back the next day.
