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.

Interesting for local arabic architecture

A nice, quick and short visit to get familiar with local history and architecture. It's worth the visit.

Located where the Kasbah meets the Medina, this little gem was one of the highlights of my recent (and first) trip to Marrakech. The architecture of the "mausoleums" was intricate and beautiful. The grounds were lovely. Fascinating to hear about the history via the many guides present.

Nice to walk through a garden like setting and take pictures. The tombs themselves are not that special but it's more about the colorful patterns and motives (giant eyecatcher).

Interesting tombs of the Saladian dynasty with many graves in colourful tiles . Some are inside and some outside in the courtyard. Worth a visit . Quite crowded I should think with groups. When we visited had to queue a bit to see the rooms

The entrance fee is around 20 dhm per adult.Inside you can see a spacious garden and a few buildings with chambers and graves made in unique Arabic architecture style!Wont say it's "must visit" place but if you have time,it's nice to check!

Not worth a special trip, but if you are nearby and have 15-20 minutes to spare, it's ok. Basically, you walk through an enclosed garden where dozens of flat unmarked capstones denote the last resting places of the Saladian kings and maybe (based on the sizes of the stones) their wives and children. You can also spend a couple of... More

Was a good place to visit, the tombs are nice to see, the mozaique work is very pretty, but it's not a definitely must-see when you go to marrakech.

Entry fee is only 10Dh, 5 mins walk from the main square Jamma al Fna, worth having a look even if the site is very small. you'll need no more than 20 mins in here.

You will have to queue to get a peek at this tombs for about 5 seconds. It is beautiful but no explanations are given and that's a bit of a shame..
