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 tombs are pretty, but it is crazy crowded. There is just a small viewing area where you can look in to see the prettiest tombs and the tile work. You line up for a long time for just a moments glance. The other tombs...More

Rather like Petra the Saadian Tombs are approached through a narrow passageway barely able to allow two American tourists to march abreast. Lost until the early part of the last century when a French pilot spotted something sealed off behind walls & beneath a mess...More

Old gravesite that is well maintained and an oasis of quitness near a busy mosque and square. Nice experience.

This is a small but beautiful garden housing 3 tombs that have stunning mosaics to view. Cheap entry and although it won't be a long visit it's well worth a look.

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.
