The tombs are undergoing quite significant renovations at the moment but you still get to feel what it must have been like when it was first built. It only costs 10 dirhams to get in so it is worth a look. Attractions tend to close...More

Another must see on your trip to Marrakesh. We came across this place whilst sipping tea in Kasbah. Cheap entry fee and good historical information about the place. Lots of renovation / preservation going on here too. Excellent to see.

Beautiful history but under reconstruction, not much to see and no information on anything. Still worth popping in to have a look.

The small garden and tombs area are worth a very short visit for a tiny fee. It is a historic site that is the resting place of the rulers of the Saadian dynasty and would combine well with a trip to the nearby Badii Palace....More

I found the tombs quite difficult to find, the entrance is next to the Mosque Moulay El Yazid and opposite Kasbah Café. Admission is 10 MAD and at the moment there is some restoration work taking place so some of the areas are not accessible....More

You really only need 5 minutes max to look at this site, especially if you have visited the Bahia and Badi palaces. Just a couple of pretty tiled rooms to peep into and lots of renovation work going on. But, only 10 dirhams so not...More

While the entry fee of 10DS is hardly gonna break the bank, in reality there's not much to see. Only for the die hards.

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.
