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.

Nicely preserved, lightly visited. Go around the back of the mosque in front to get there. Beware there are signs for the tombs about 2 blocks away that lead down an alley to shops, not to the tombs. Could use a bit more description on site but your standard tour book or cell phone browser is fine too.

It is also a must see attraction while you are in Marrakech. It is an old luxury and big house with beautiful garden and in a great condition.

These tombs are a really nice throwback stroll for about 15 minutes. I think they're free or $1-2. Check it out.

For the history and architecture, you cannot go wrong! Colors are vibrant! Lines can be long to get inside some of the higher visited areas, however, the majority of the views from outside are still amazing if there are time constraints or if members of your group have shorter attention spans. Worth the trip, and for a dollar, definitely worth... More

Very interesting and highly detailed sculptures of wood and stucca showing an advanced level of craftmanship. The location is a haven of peace compared to the busy surroundings.

The Saadian tombs are a most-see spot in Marrakech. The site is really old (over 500 years) and is so beautiful. The mosaics and gold detailing are absolutely gorgeous. We hired a local guide at the ticket booth for a small fee and this was really helpful because he knew a lot about the tombs and shared fabulous information along... More

Even though we went early, and in low season the queue to see the main royal tomb was building up and you don't get long to look at it. Well worth the visit though.

This is a very interesting place to visit as well as very easy to find within the Medina labyrinth. Of course, if you want a complete description (historic and architectural) you will need a local guide as the description displayed outside is quite complete but you will have difficulties in matching it with the tombs. Worth visiting if you are... More
