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.

Everybody is waiting in line to get to the small door and catch a view inside. Nice illumination. Without would be very dark.

You will not spend long here but the main tomb is very impressive. You have to queue to get into the complex and then queue again to view the main tomb. You have only a few moments to look over a ledge and take some...More

Staff at the ticket office rude, refused to take 100 MAD banknote as too big. The queues outside small but inside at the tombs big. Not much to see. Much nicer places in Marrakech than this.

At the entrance price it is worth taking a look at this place, if only for a little peace and quiet. Some nice architecture and gives a little insight into days gone by. You probably only need about an hour here. The entrance is not...More

Thankfully we visited in the winter! I would not like to stand in the queues in summer. Essentially you pay, queue all round a graveyard with slabs on the ground and mosaics. The queue takes you up a doorway where you can photograph it look...More

Really nice place to visit. The line to see the tombs was very long and at least 30 minutes of waiting. Even the grounds are beautiful and well maintained.

If tiling really isn’t your thing, then the Saadian tombs are probably not for you. We, however, loved our visit. The site is small and - after you have paid your 10 dirham entrance fee - you have to go down a narrow zig-zag alley...More

The inside is just awe inspiring. Must visit. You cannot go inside to view the inside of the tomb. But can view it from a narrow corridor. There is a long line to see it. And you only get a few seconds to see 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.
