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 are easy to find and worth a visit. Inside the walls and ceilings are covered in intricate hand carved patterns which must have taken months to complete!

Lovely and peaceful, beautiful tiling and carpentry. A nice way to escape the heat of the day! The man at the ticket office was very friendly.

Round the back of the mosque in a small alley is the entrance. Tucked away but is a rewarding visit to see the heavily ornate chambers.

Not really tombs, more like a grave yard. It was only 10 Dh to get in so wasn't that bothered. Nice architecture and impressive tiling around. Worth it if you are in the area but don't go out of your way.

The Saadian tombs is a must do on a trip to Marrakech. The place does not take long to visit but has lovely architecture and wonderful decorations. At 10 MAD for admission, it's very cheap and worth the visit.

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.
