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.

We stopped here on our tour of Marrakech. Overall a nice stop for pictures for about 30 mins. Our guide explained the history of the tomb which definitely enhanced our visit. Worth a stop.

The Saadian tombs are hidden behind a mosque at a very beautiful place in the southern part of Medina. Admission fee is 10 DH per person but it will not take longer than 30min in total to visit the site. The tombs are nice, but...More

What amazing history! The first royal family that died off by the 12th century. A family that had everything but health. But craziest fact is that their tombs weren't discovered until 100s of years later. This was fun...but our guide Ouidad was the best. Our...More

Bit hidden away but the place has the most detailed and elegant mosaics that we saw in Marrakech. It is not very big but really worth it in our opinion.

One, and only tip - be there first thing in the morning, before opening. You will get an opportunity to see ususally crowded tombs all by yourself. It's so quiet when, and not so hot ;)

And only £1 to get in! Like a lot of sights in Marrakech it was not very well signposted. It is opposite the Kasbah Cafe.

It took a long time stood in a queue to have a few minutes to view the tombs. The area to view the tombs is really small, allowing 2 people to view at once. Not really worth wasting time visiting if busy.

I wish I had a guide telling us the history behind everything as we were seeing it. There were no signs or information about the tombs, but you at least don't need a guide to tell you something is pretty awesome. Very inexpensive to get...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.
