Overview

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.

Quite unremarkable until seeing the main tomb. Mind blowing intricate detail. So beautiful that people are dying to get in there!!

Short stop to visit the royal tombs of a 16th century king in Marrakech. The line to visit the Kings tomb room is worth it - it's a beautifully designed room. Very hot so bring water.

This was our first historic site we visited in Marrakech. Just OK. Not crowded. Small but beautiful.

It only cost 10 dirhams each to get in but there's no information once in. We didn't really know what we were looking at and it's not that big. It took us 15 mins at the most before we were out. It was OK but...More

Would recommend to visit if you interested in history of morocco; difference between western and eastern burial sites. Mosaik work on graves interesting, men and sons vs women and daughter vs soldiers and servants burial sites were interesting to see

The tombs are still small but beautiful. A definite must see. Unfortunately there aren't any signs or information plaques so a tour may be more informative. I downloaded the lonely Planets offline guide so it gave me an overview.

10mad to enter. Really interesting architecture and gardens. Quite small, easily seen within an hour. Limited shade, you can view the crypts from viewing areas but not enter the buildings themselves. Definitely recommend.

Went on a guided tour with some friends. I thought the place was pretty average. Nothing spectacular at all. You won't be missing anything if you skip this place.

Didn't take very long to walk around and look. No information about the tombs and could have been anyone from anywhere!

A beautiful place with lovely marble work. Does tend to get very busy as a popular tourist attraction but not at a ridiculous level. There are many stall vendors outside that WILL hassle you, the same way they do in the square or in the...More

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.
