The Saadian Tombs are located just outside Marrakech and were constructed...

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.

How crazy to think these tombs lay undiscovered in the middle of the city for so long? This was such a wonderful place to visit as not only is the architecture stunning but also the story behind them is moving and thought provoking. Only a short visit is required but it's situated quite close to the palace so makes for... More

Unless you have a prior understanding of the tombs background then you'll only need to make this a quick visit. Very small site with little information around. Although the main tomb site is beautiful to gaze upon. The site is tucked away in the corner around the side of a mosque so make sure you pin point it on your... More

You haveto remember to look up at all the Moroccan buildings - the Ceilings are amazing. Entry fees astonishingly cheap, well maintained and well worth a look!

Nicely preserved, lightly visited. Go around the back of the mosque in front to get there. Beware there are signs for the tombs about 2 blocks away that lead down an alley to shops, not to the tombs. Could use a bit more description on site but your standard tour book or cell phone browser is fine too.

It is also a must see attraction while you are in Marrakech. It is an old luxury and big house with beautiful garden and in a great condition.

These tombs are a really nice throwback stroll for about 15 minutes. I think they're free or $1-2. Check it out.

For the history and architecture, you cannot go wrong! Colors are vibrant! Lines can be long to get inside some of the higher visited areas, however, the majority of the views from outside are still amazing if there are time constraints or if members of your group have shorter attention spans. Worth the trip, and for a dollar, definitely worth... More

We noticed some visitors who were not with a guide walked straight pass the King's tomb as there was no sign posted on the walls outside or next to the tombs to tell you which tombs they were . The King's Tomb was very impressive .If you have time , linger around to look at the tombs and gardens as... More
