Overview
More
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.

Not big, just fabulous. The tombs are beautiful, although the queues can get long. Hidden away down a small turning, through a narrow passage - well worth a visit.

This site looked really interesting and clearly there's a fascinating history to it but sadly our guide for the day was pretty rubbish so we didn't know what we were looking at really. Likely to need to queue a while to take a peak inside...More

It is very nicely decorated but everything does look the same and there are no explanations so it was literally walking around looking at tombs without understanding anything. Severely underwhelming experience I feel (although I don't know what I was expecting from a tomb).

We went right in, looked around, then waited in a LONG line for 30 minutes. We thought we were going inside; when you got to the front you got to stand in the doorway to peek inside. Not worth the wait in the hot sun,...More

A small entrance next to mosque and Rue De is Kasbah easily missed, once inside you are in a cool and calm gardens, the tomb is not large but worth a visit, only 10dh, quite busy with tourists

Our experience at the Saadien Tombs was similar to that of some others who have written reviews of this site: We had a very nice guided tour of most of the tombs and gardens, but never got into the king’s tomb because of the endless...More

Now this place is dedicated to the people who are interested by the succession of different dynasties thru time, especially on the moroccan territory. You can go by your own if want to discover the place nothing more, or you can hire a local guide...More

Hello, I’m sure you’ll have a great time in Marrakesh. We took an excursion up to the Atlas Mountains and this was arranged easily with the hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and gave us a lot of tips on how to get round... 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.
