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.

The place is not very big, it is definitely worth visiting. Architecture and all details are amazing. There were turtles walking freely too.

Went here with a tour that we had booked through our hotel- it was quite crowded by the time we got there and is quite a small area. Some very highly decorated tombs- the king one in particular. Was nice to see and get some...More

If you want to kill 30 mins its OK, price is about a pound to look around so not going to brake the bank.

The line is typically long to see the Saadian tombs (the line starts inside, once you have paid to go in). We would recommend visiting first thing in the morning if you want to see them. They are quite nice but if you are on...More

You have to go because you are there, but I don't honestly think you are missing anything. It is a small site with a lot of people trying to take a photo. I think there is equally as interesting architecture elsewhere.

It only cost you 10DH and it is worth to go. We made a long cue (quick) but we did not expect it. Amazing! As usual detail work in wood and plaster with lovely colors. Really interesting to go.

This was in the top 10 places to visit and whilst it was interesting it was too crowded and just a lot of tombs. Worth a visit if you are in the area but I wouldn't make a special trip

Crammed near a very nice old Mosque. Better to visit nearby prayer moment time for the local color. Worth having a guide for the local history detail. Long queue in order to reach the perfect photo stop

A quick visit to this site is all that’s really needed. The tombs are interesting and the architecture is worth the 10DH entrance but there’s not a whole lot else to see. In the same area as the palaces so make sure to visit them...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.
