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.

Beautiful but long wait

You will have to queue to get a peek at this tombs for about 5 seconds. It is beautiful but no explanations are given and that's a bit of a shame..

The whole place is serene, full of light, and emits eternity and happiness. It is a combination of stone, color and form that all together makes very remarkable impression.

These tombs are right at the edge of the medina, but are completely hidden. They are only accessible through a tiny alley that is poorly marked. But it's worth it once you find them, gorgeous tombs.

Good to visit but not much information provided on tombs. Not a large area so could get crowded with visitors. Usual sales traps outside.

This is a 15-60min visit depending on your interest. There is some restoration work going on. Much of this area is off limits or has deteriorated. However, it is interesting for history and architecture buffs. Walking is fairly flat. 10 DH admission per person.

Out of all the attractions we visited this was without doubt the one that we wished we hadn't bothered with to be honest. There are so many more interesting things to do and see in the city if you only have a couple of days.

An interesting sight but the truth is there isn't a whole lot to see or do and you could easily be in and out in 10/15 minutes. Still, the tombs themselves are pretty unique and worth a look if you're in the area.

Plan for an hour or so (there will be crowds in the high season) to visit this beautifully finished but small cemetery (with gardens) - dignitaries etc. got a tomb marker, the commoners did not. The entrance fee is reasonably cheap, however there is not a huge amount to see. Read up beforehand and save yourself the fee for a... More

Lesson learned: get a guide. This was the second place we visit on our own without a guide, and I really would have appreciated a guide. Entry ticket is cheap, and there are plaques explaining what you will see, but once inside you are on your own. There were two employees: one who wore a security guard uniform and a... More

Apparently crowded with tourists during the summer, it was thankfully fairly quiet and peaceful when I visited. These tombs were built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Saadi dynasty, but walled up by the succeeding dynasty, re-discovered only a 100 years ago. There are some lovely tiles and architectural motifs, as well as interesting garden but, there wasn't... More
