Touring Saadian Tombs allows you to learn about the Saadi dynasty and the wealth and splendor enjoyed by its sultans. The mausoleum was constructed on orders of sultan Ahmad al-Mansur during the 16th century--the remains of around 60 members of the family have been interred here, including the sultan's mother, wives, and children. Each room has been decorated with great attention to detail, though the Chamber of the 12 Pillars boasts the finest marble, plaster, and gold ornamentation--a resting place fit for a royal, it contains the remains of Al-Mansur and his son.

Utter rip-off. Pretty much all the positive reviews here are by guides - they’d bound to say its great. But it just isn’t. Queues to see almost nothing of interest. So disappointing. Furthermore he people who work at the ticket desk deliberately try to round up the price - claiming not to have change - just crooked.
Nice place, but not much to see. For the most famous room you have to queue. Not really worth the 70DH.
