Saadian Tombs, Marrakesh

Rue de Kasbah
Bab Agnaou/ Kasbah
Morocco 40000's insider take:

This walled royal burial ground and gardens were discovered by accident in 1917, from an aerial map of the Medina made by French colonial officials. It dates from the late 16th century, and was founded by the powerful head of the Saadian dynasty, Sultan Ahmed El Mansour, who is buried here along with many of his family members. Used by various dynasties for more than 200 years, the beautifully restored site numbers more than 60 pagoda-shaped marble sarcophagi housed in two mausoleums decorated with dazzling zellij-tiled walls, cedar columns, and sculpted arches. Most visitors arrive here as part of a group tour, but individuals are free to walk around on their own.

Open daily 8:30 to 11:45 am and 2:30 to 5:45 pm.
