Hg2 : The Hedonist

Saadian Tombs

The Saadian Tombs are small in size but huge in cultural significance, since they contain the sacred mausoleums of the grand sultans of the Saadian era so a must place to see in Marrakech. They were discovered by accident in the 1920s by the French military, a fantastic find since the low, mosaic tombs inside actually pre-date the Saadian era. The main attractions are three pavilions, which include a Prayer Hall and the Hall of Twelve Columns, containing the tombs of various Alaouite princes plus the Saadian sultan Ahmed El Mansour, his son and grandson.
