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.

Wonderful layout for graves of the Saadian dynasty. Hard to understand that this site was 'off the map' until a French colonial official 'discovered' it. How do you lose track of a ornamental graveyard in the middle of the Kashbah?

What a beautiful place to visit whilst in Marrakech! Myself and my partner decided to go around it on our own as we had researched the history behind it. However I would suggest going along with the guide for a little extra cost as it...More

We almost missed this, but decided with an hour left before the airport we could make it happen. We were a tad rushed but glad we got to take in the splendor of the tombs. The line can seem a little much to view inside,...More

Absolutely stunning! The architecture is beautiful, make sure to visit the tombs if you’re in Marrakech. The ticket is only 10 dirham and it’s totally 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.
