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.

Make a short visit and pay the small 10dirham fee while out and about on other business. It's not far from Cafe Clock and you could visit the tombs on the way to lunch there.

The Saadian Tombs are a must in Marrakech. The famous Moroccan mosaics, and the intricate designs will make you want to spend at least a few hours looking at them.

Only 10 dh to get in so worth a trip. Not a huge place but the architecture, the carved marble and timber is phenomenal - pure craftsmanship. Loved seeing the stork on its nest outside the tomb entrance!

Situated down an alleyway on the corner of Kasbah mosque this is a tranquil area. A small courtyard with tombs from a previous ruling dynasty. Sobering that so my of the 50+ tombs are for small children

The Saadian Tombs are very elegant resting places in Marrakech. The venue is quite small and easy to navigate, a great place to seek respite from the intense sun and heat! There are many sweet little cats scrambling around which adds to the experience.

The tombs are quite good and very cheap to get in... Worth visiting when you are in the Kasbah or near the main mosque but not worth trekking across town just to see them.

If there is only one opportunity to visit a 'monument', this should be the one. The history and beauty of this site must not be underestimated

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.
