The Saadian Tombs built-in the 16th century as a mausoleum to bury numerous Saadian rulers. It was ‘lost’ for many years until rediscovered in 1917. The mausoleum comprises the corpses of about sixty members of the Saadi Dynasty. Among the graves are those of Saadian sultan Ahmad al-Mansur and his family.
It is located at the opposite end of the Moulay El Yazid mosque’s minaret, in a cemetery that supposedly also contains several graves of Prophet Mohammad’s descendants. Outside the building there is a garden and the graves of soldiers and servants.

Typical Moroccan mosaic tiles decorate the floor and walls of the mausoleum.
This would probably be tombs of infants and childrens.
