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.
