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.

It took a long time stood in a queue to have a few minutes to view the tombs. The area to view the tombs is really small, allowing 2 people to view at once. Not really worth wasting time visiting if busy.

You HAVE to have a guide to appreciate this and a guide you can understand. There is so much history and the stories but you really need it to really appreciate this all.

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.
