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.

Not worth a special trip, but if you are nearby and have 15-20 minutes to spare, it's ok. Basically, you walk through an enclosed garden where dozens of flat unmarked capstones denote the last resting places of the Saladian kings and maybe (based on the sizes of the stones) their wives and children. You can also spend a couple of... More

Was a good place to visit, the tombs are nice to see, the mozaique work is very pretty, but it's not a definitely must-see when you go to marrakech.

Entry fee is only 10Dh, 5 mins walk from the main square Jamma al Fna, worth having a look even if the site is very small. you'll need no more than 20 mins in here.

You will have to queue to get a peek at this tombs for about 5 seconds. It is beautiful but no explanations are given and that's a bit of a shame..

The whole place is serene, full of light, and emits eternity and happiness. It is a combination of stone, color and form that all together makes very remarkable impression.

These tombs are right at the edge of the medina, but are completely hidden. They are only accessible through a tiny alley that is poorly marked. But it's worth it once you find them, gorgeous tombs.

Good to visit but not much information provided on tombs. Not a large area so could get crowded with visitors. Usual sales traps outside.

This is a 15-60min visit depending on your interest. There is some restoration work going on. Much of this area is off limits or has deteriorated. However, it is interesting for history and architecture buffs. Walking is fairly flat. 10 DH admission per person.

Out of all the attractions we visited this was without doubt the one that we wished we hadn't bothered with to be honest. There are so many more interesting things to do and see in the city if you only have a couple of days.
