A long lost set of tombs from a former era, these tombs have a beautiful simplicity. Well worth the small entry fee.

A peaceful place to visit. The tombs of the Saadian Dynasty. The garden was very beautiful with lots of colourful flowers and orange trees. Amazing to look at. The inside of the buildings has lots of arabic carvings and colorful tiles.

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.
