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.

Not the most exviting place to visit, but if you are in the area I would recommend popping in just to have a look. Perhaps do a bit of history reading first.

The Saadian dynasty ruled over much of Morocco until the 1600s. This area contained the very elaborate and richly decorated tombs of the kings and dignitaries. The tile work and intricate carvings are absolutely stunning. The area is small, so won't take you much time to explore.

A long lost set of tombs from a former era, these tombs have a beautiful simplicity. Well worth the small entry fee.

A peaceful place to visit. The tombs of the Saadian Dynasty. The garden was very beautiful with lots of colourful flowers and orange trees. Amazing to look at. The inside of the buildings has lots of arabic carvings and colorful tiles.

A bit crowded with a small viewing area and lines, so it felt rushed to see what we would have liked to take a long time to view. It's intricate internal design is beautiful and worth really lingering over. Would recommend going early in the morning so you have to time without crowds to really appreciate it.
