Overview
More
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.

The actual place was beautiful but rather small. It was a cool piece of history to see when visiting Marrakech. It’s close to the Medina and will take 30 minutes tops to roam around.

Really there's nothing here. Just some mosaic tombs and empty rooms and nothing of any real interest.

This location only needs 30 minutes and is a walk off the Jemaa El Fnaa. Pleasant enough but no signage. Possibly more impactful wih a guide.

A collection of tombs of the Royal Family. Mostly tile markers on the ground. Two intricate rooms with ceilings similar to the Alhambra, but long lines to view them on the day of our visit. Go to the palace instead.

We visited in the middle of the day, and there were some queues, so worth trying to come either early or late. The entrance price is only dh10, which is great value. It is hard to describe how intricate the details of the decorations are...More

Worth a quick visit if your passing, cheap entry too. The mosaic tiling is impressive. Look out for the tortoises! 😬

The place is not very big, it is definitely worth visiting. Architecture and all details are amazing. There were turtles walking freely too.

Went here with a tour that we had booked through our hotel- it was quite crowded by the time we got there and is quite a small area. Some very highly decorated tombs- the king one in particular. Was nice to see and get some...More

We went here as part of a 3 hour walking tour with a private guide. Fantastic history and again the beautiful craftsmanship everywhere.

If you want to kill 30 mins its OK, price is about a pound to look around so not going to brake the bank.

Hello, I’m sure you’ll have a great time in Marrakesh. We took an excursion up to the Atlas Mountains and this was arranged easily with the hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and gave us a lot of tips on how to get round... 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.
