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.

“Tombs and courtyard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Not really much to say about this place there are a couple of mosaic rooms with tombs set in a large courtyard area. Nice enough place to visit and take photos. There is a small entry charge, inside there is no information at all. If you're passing and have time visit but don't stress about leaving this place off the list of things to do.

“Tombs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Nice gardens & lots of mosaic tiles but unless you buy a guide book for around £7.50 not a lot of information on the residents, should have done some homework first.

“A graveyard”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is basically just a graveyard, even if it is a particularly pretty one. If you're super busy, I probably wouldn't bother visiting, but it is only 10 dhs to get in.

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

Follow the lane round to pay your 10 dirham each and then around a small windy lane to the tombs themselves. It is a cemetary but an old and very elaborate one, highly decorated according to the status of the occupant.

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.
