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.

  • Interesting visit. Queues will no doubt be long during peak times. The architecture is rather beautiful and intricate. Very cheap entrance fee. Loved it.

  • You'll only need the morning to hit this stop. It's a small place. What takes a while is the line inside the tombs to see a special area, but other that it only costs 10 MAD to get in. They don't usually have change at the ticketing booth, so it miggt be wise to bring some before hand. There are also nice stores and cafes outside the mosque to kill some time or relax.

  • Pretty walk about for a few minutes, better to have a guide or read up a bit beforehand. Actually the best way to visit this place is from a high rooftop with cocktails. That rooftop would be La Sultana. Birds eye view 👁 with zero crowds .

  • A very overrated place. Took us forever to find this place, if only it was worth it but it's not. Small packed with tourists, a very long waiting line to see the the main attraction, take photos quickly and let others (two each time) i don't recommend this place at all. A waste of time. There are far better places in the city.

  • Smaller than expected. There are no signs to tell you about the tombs so bring a guidebook to get a better picture of the significance. Lots of beautiful rose bushes and a giant fig tree in the courtyard. The mosaic tiling is beautiful to look at in the sun.
