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.

10 MAD, tiny place you can be finished in 10-15 minutes, a bit difficult to find so look for the cafe across the street. Great architecture, spent a lot of time looking up at the ceilings of the rooms, I thought it was worth it...More

The tombs are very old and set in a courtyard. When you look into the building where the king is buried the walls are beautifully adorned and very ornate. The tombs are in small groups and some are laid in buildings - this is very...More

Without a tour guide we were a touch out of the loop about what we were really seeing, however all the tombs and rooms were amazing. Don't expect to stay long, however the 10Dh price tag for admission is still well worth it.

We thought we hired a tour guide but it was more like a driver so when we went to the tombs we weren't sure what we were looking at, why it was an important sight, or who was buried there. They are beautiful tombs but...More

Interesting to see the graves of a different culture. Visited with a guide who gave us an interesting commentary of these tombs

An oasis of peace away from the hustle and bustle, suggest getting a guide as you will not find out the information to appreciate the tombs

This was a highlight of the trip. If you have only one day in Marrakech, visit the Saadian Tombs and the Majorelle Gardens. The modest entrance through a winding alley belies the magnificence of these monuments, which had been forgotten, abandoned and buried in the...More

Amazing how these were hidden for so long. They really are beautiful. Depending on how long the line is, you may only get a quick glimpse, but it is worth it, amazing detail.

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.
