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

  • One of the finest examples of Moore architecture and their influence in north Africa. Twelve columns tomb and intricate draws awe to any visitors. Garden in the middle and flower landscape adds additional aesthetics to the historic place. Stork on roof is a bonus. Usually long lines to see tomb, so plan early hours.

  • Beautiful tombs. The Saadian Tombs are small but exquisitely decorated. The are some of best examples of Islamic geometric architecture and furnishings in Marrakech and worth it. I can see why some people wouldn't like it if it was busy as some of the viewing areas are small. Go when we did early to avoid the crowds, and avoid Friday.

  • 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.

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

  • Great for the value! 10 dirhams and a beautiful building. Get there early to avoid the tour groups
