    Three Tombs - Hall Of Twelve Columns
    3 more images

    Favorite thing: First discovered by a Frenchman during the 1920's this burial ground for Saadian Sultans had been hidden from foreigners. The Hall Of 12 Columns is a most beautiful building, having 3 central tombs surrounded by a dozen marble pillars. This building is considered one of the finest examples of Moroccan-Andalucian decorative art.

    There are also gardens and other lesser buildings with various tombs and marble decoration.

    The Saadian Tombs are located Rue de Kasbah, Bab Agnaou.
