Saadian Tombs - Review

The Saadian tombs are a reminder of the lengths that a King could go to keep his hierarchy, even after his death. A glaring showcase of unapologetic superiority and brash pompousness, the tomb of Mansour Al Ahmed stands out from the rest of the 65 tombs like a shining star on a no-moon night.

This is also the only show-stopper of your visit to the Saadian tombs; the ornate, Italian-marbled, gold-polished resting place of the larger-than-life Saadian emperor. As irony would have it, the tomb was carefully hidden from plain sight for years till its chance discovery by an unsuspecting French General.

Most argue that a glimpse of the tomb is well worth the long wait in the boring queues, but it’s better to reach early to avoid the crowds.

Saadian Tombs, Marrakesh Reviews

  • Saadiens Tombs Tombeaux Saadiens is an outstanding wonderful place, and yet our living Lord, the God of Isaac, Abraham, & Jacob, is SO MUCH GREATER, stronger, full of love and life. Only thru Jesus Christ (Isa, Esaa) can we be forgiven and saved and go to heaven. We invite you to accept Yeshua (Jesus, Isa, Esaa ) and be saved today ! Fellow Christians, pass it on ! مقابر السعديين يعتبر Tombeaux Saadiens مكانًا رائعًا رائعًا ، ومع ذلك ، فإن ربنا الحي ، إله إسحق ، وإبراهيم ، ويعقوب ، هو أكبر من ذلك بكثير ، وأقوى من الحب والحياة. فقط من خلال يسوع المسيح (عيسى ، عيسى) يمكن أن نغفره وننقذ ونذهب إلى السماء. نحن ندعوك لقبول يشوع (يسوع ، عيسى ، عيسى) ، ونخلص اليوم! أيها الإخوة المسيحيون ، قم بتمريرها!

  • Very nice tombs but everyone has to decide if its worth the 70 DIH for this. But you can clearly have some good shots. It is filled with tourists

  • A captivating experience. Especially once you factor in the live tortoise we spotted opening the gates for itself. Fundamentally comprising stunning gardens and palacial resting places of the royal family and its loyal servants.

  • Just another fake Marrakesh museum. You pay the price which could get you a nice lunch, yet you get almost nothing in return. I have no idea how on earth did this place end up having over 2000 4 stars reviews, but I honestly hope all you people got sick from the sun. I sincerely pray that was the case. Saadien Tombs consists of 3 rooms (THREE), each of which looks almost identical (like a poorly designed bathroom). There's a 200 people queue to "the best of the rooms", yet it's not worth the wait. Also, you get NO SIGNS AT ALL. Wonder why? Well, there's a guide you can pay to show you around. The trick is if you don't decide to buy his services you will understand NOTHING from the place, as there is no information whatsoever. This kind of behavior exhibits insolence beyond imagination of a European citizen. This is pure marrocan mentality at its best.

  • Beautiful to see but very small. Also helpful to go with a guided tour as there is no information inside about what you're seeing. The entrance is also quite hidden with not a lot of signage so be sure to not pass it by.
