Place of worship
“Built at the end of XVI century, under the kingdom of the sultan Ahmed al-Mansur Saadi, and discovered only at the beginning of the 20th century, the mausoleum hosts the bodies of the Saadians in an ambience full of beautiful decorations made of cedar wood, marble and Zellije (Moroccan tiles). You can recognize the different tombs of Jews and Christians because of the presence of different markings and symbols. The good state of preservation of the Saadian Tombs may be attributable to the fact that they were sealed off by the sultan Moulay Ismail. At the time, Ismail was destroying architectural gems such as the Badi Palace, but some speculate that, when it came to the Saadian Tombs, his superstition got the better of him and he decided to hide rather than demolish them.”

“Lovely view from the rooftop and nice little menu with fresh ingredients. Perfect for a quiet lunch or a little break while touring the medina. It can get quite busy during peak lunch hour (12h to 14h) so keep that in mind to avoid waiting for a table.”
