The Saadian Tombs are located just outside Marrakech and were constructed...

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.

A wonderful space with interesting history

The site provides a relaxing change from the hustle of the Medina, as well as insight into a different aspect of Morocco's history.

We stood in line with a few hundred European tourists, waiting to take a picture of this non-event. Really not worth the effort.

This was our second time visiting the Saadian Tombs because I wanted to be able to take good quality photos. It did not disappoint. We went in the middle of the day and there were not a lot of tourists there, so taking pictures was relatively easy and unobstructed. Definately worth a visit. Very low entrance fee.

We went at a very crowded time and as we were shuffling around the small site this probably did not show it at its best. But in spite of this, it is an interesting and attractive spot and certainly worth taking the trouble to find - like so many of the attractions in Marrakech, the entrance is narrow and insignificant...

It was a nice building and it only costs 10 dirham but it is not super special. The 3 rooms are nice to see though so if you are in the neighborhood it is worth a visit

Surprisingly tranquil and beautiful gardens. This is an extremely well-priced attraction. Sure, there is not that much to see, but for the price I would recommend a visit.

The area containing the tombs is beautiful and interesting but to be honest, watching the artisans crafting their reconstruction work was fascinating. The grounds are serene and a break from the hustle of Marrakech. A good 15 minutes I'd ask you need.

Not sure what we were expecting, but it was more than what we saw. A large over-grown garden type area with a number of rectangular tombs. Building work going on so didn't feel natural. Inside the building we couldn't go so again, huge restrictions.

Located close to the Kasbah Mosque and accessed via a narrow passage where a small shop is located. The owner will try to persuade you to buy a postcard. do NOT buy water from him a she charges 15 Dirhams and only 5 dirhams elsewhere! There is much renovation of the central mausoleum and intricately carved stucco was being made.... More
