Overview
More
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 were taken to the Saadian Tombs by our local guide which was a fabulous way to view them as we learnt so much about the Saadian Dynasty history. There is a small entrance fee which is definitely worth it as the buildings & architectural...More

Cool and charming place that does not really resembles a cemetery. The colors are vivid, the stories are unbelievable. A place worthy of the book of the one thousand and one nights!

The Saadian tombs of Marrakesh in Morocco, date from the time of the great sultan Ahmed al-Mansur Saadi. These tombs were discovered only around 1917, then restored by the service of the Beaux-Arts. They are richly decorated

Very well restored. After years, when I came back here I see more amenities for tourists. Moroccans have something to boast about and they know how to do it.

Try and get here early in the morning to avoid the crowds. Well worth the visit but queuing in the sun isn’t much fun

A gorgeous piece of history. Fairly priced, easy to walk in and have a look and some fantastic architecture. There are no signs or explanations so best to read about it in a guide book first so you know what you are looking at. Cost...More

A very interesting site, with very old royal tombs. There are no signs inside explaining what the tombs are or who they belong to, so I would recommend walking round with one of the guides, who explain in detail who is in the tombs and...More

Good to visit if you want to learn more about Marrakesh. We expected it to be bigger, we spent about 30 minutes.

The tombs are roughly a 5 minute walk from the central Medina, and well worth a visit. It's a beautiful quiet spot, with very well kept gardens around the fascinating ornate gravestones and surroundings. Entry is 10 DIR per person.

Hello - the tombs are visited by many visitors so I would imagine that it's open at least 10-4, but I can't be sure.
