Saadian Tombs



The Saadian Tombs are a historic royal necropolis in Marrakech, Morocco. They date to the time of the Saadian dynasty, and in particular to the reign of Ahmad al-Mansur.

They are located on the south side of the Kasbah Mosque, inside the royal kasbah district of the city.

The necropolis is a large garden cemetery enclosed by a rampart to the south and by the wall of the Kasbah Mosque to the north. Inside this are two main buildings; one on the western edge of the cemetery (on the left as visitors enter) and the other further east, surrounded by the cemetery gardens. The gardens themselves are filled with graves covered by colorful tiles.
