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.

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

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

Went here as part of the historic trails in the Medina - of course, you have to go, once in Marrakech. Unfortunately, the very narrow entrance to the site is the most exciting experience - you have to be historically interested and READ/KNOW your history...More

Go early in the morning to avoid waiting in line. With a local guide you will learn more about specifics of the Tombs.

The tombs were another place that you could go and explore for almost nothing - that in itself seemed quite disrespectful!. A stunning collection so tombs amidst a beautiful structure combining intricate wood work designs and marble/tile work. It was beautifully peaceful. Sadly as was...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.
