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.

A small quiet resting place for the past rulers with intricate woodwork and plaster-work. Don's miss out Bab Agnaou which is just around the corner outside the Tombs.

A place with lots of history. However if you can't read Arabic or French you can't read up on any of the history there. The atmosphere was a little morbid. Only took 15 mins to look around. For the price it was worth it.

Fantastic - go and be amazed, especially at the Golden King's burial chamber, adorned with real gold, and imported marble. The Sultan's dedication to his mother was impressive - reflecting the respect he showed and counsel he took from her throughout his life. Very affordable...More

it's a sanctuary where you can find many graves of the Saadian period. It's better to do a guided tour so that you can learn all the historical facts

Very beautiful architecture and decorations, but it can get really busy and to see the tombs you might have to join a long queue.

Interesting and tucked away. I took the optional tour guide (in French) which was good and informative but expensive.

Located where the Kasbah meets the Medina, this little gem was one of the highlights of my recent (and first) trip to Marrakech. The architecture of the "mausoleums" was intricate and beautiful. The grounds were lovely. Fascinating to hear about the history via the many...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.
