Overview

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.

Definitely cool - but we went in the shoulder season and it was insanely packed... I cannot imagine in the high season!!

We were able to get into only part of the tombs since by 11am after spending more than 2 hours in Bahia Palace, the crowds were enormous. Best to do the Tombs first and then Bahia.

Not the largest complex, but the main room is quiet stunning. Just wish we got more than 15 seconds to look at it before having to exit the tiny viewing area. For 10 dirhams though, you can't be mad.

Be prepared for long queues if you hit it at the same time with big tourist groups. Gardens were ok and tombs beutifully decorated. If you have time go ahead and see it.

We waited in line for over 30-minutes to see the tombs, which were certainly a beautiful and epic piece of history, but which were not necessarily worth the wait. The gardens were lovely and this may b better seen on a guided tour.

The actual place was beautiful but rather small. It was a cool piece of history to see when visiting Marrakech. It’s close to the Medina and will take 30 minutes tops to roam around.

Really there's nothing here. Just some mosaic tombs and empty rooms and nothing of any real interest.

This location only needs 30 minutes and is a walk off the Jemaa El Fnaa. Pleasant enough but no signage. Possibly more impactful wih a guide.

A collection of tombs of the Royal Family. Mostly tile markers on the ground. Two intricate rooms with ceilings similar to the Alhambra, but long lines to view them on the day of our visit. Go to the palace instead.

Hello, I’m sure you’ll have a great time in Marrakesh. We took an excursion up to the Atlas Mountains and this was arranged easily with the hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and gave us a lot of tips on how to get round... 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.
