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.

We visited these beautiful tombs. The access is quite small and although it was late afternoon and there were no tour groups we still had to wait over 20 mins inside to see the main tomb. It was worth it, but would have hated to...More

The tombs are on all of the ‘must visit’ lists, yet I found them to be underwhelming after the other main sites that we visited. It was very busy and we queued for a few moments at the doorway to get a view of the...More

Like with all the other places, bring in a guide and explaining about the tombs and how they discovered this place.

We went without a guide, and just wandered around looking at the different tombs and 'rooms'. Very interesting...though, with hindsight, we'd probably hire a guide to get a better understanding of the place. A must-see in Marrakech

The Saadian Tombs are within 15 minutes walk from the Jemma el Fnna – market square. They are located just behind Moulay El Yazid Mosque. We had to ask for directions as we initially walk passed the narrow alley leading to the entrance gate. There...More

Very interesting side to Morocco’s history and how burials were segregated. Best to visit with a guide to benefit from the narration.

About 10-15 mins walk from the main square Worth a visit and also hiring a guide from this place to tell you about history We paid about 40-50 dirhams for the guide which was well worth the money

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.
