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.

A nice cool place to get out of the sun, with some nice mosaics. Cheap at only 10DH but the queue for the main tomb is pretty hefty even in the winter months. It's not a massive sight and it's buggy/disabled friendly.

If you're in the region of these tombs then it's worth a quick visit, but I wouldn't recommend a separate trip here. The entrance fee is only about 1 euro, but there's not much inside at all apart from one beautiful chamber which you only...More

Ver lavishly decorated and beautiful tombs, so sad to see that so many were children. Beware very long queues in the extreme heat during the day.

Maybe it's me being a bit of a philistine but I was not overly impressed with this. Basically, one wanders around and then queues to look at the tombs without any idea as to what they relate to

Tombs are well preserved although choose your time carefully as you will have to queue. Only one doorway for everyone to look through. Well worth the wait though.

This is a popular and beautiful site. Go early if you are able as it is small and lines form. There is a beautiful stork nest just outside.

It gets very crowded, and rightly so. If travelling independently, turn up at opening time for the most relaxed experience. It's well worth the visit. Nice to see restoration work being done on mosaics.

Our hotel said to go here only if you want to see the tile work. They were right. Nothing remotely interesting about this place except one room where the tombs on the floor combined with the columns and arches in the room are awesome. Other...More

If the question is, is it worth going? I would answer yes. But if you change the qüestions to, did you enjoy your visit? I would answer no. The kings chamber is magnificent but you are asked to leave before you can even admire the...More

The Saadi tombs are a small side but was one of the nicer things we saw in Marrakech. We had to wait half an hour for the main hall (which you can only view from the outside) but it was worth it.

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.
