Tucked into the kasbah of Marrakech you’ll find the Saadian Tombs. The tombs are next to the Kasbah mosque built by the Almohad dynasty in 1184. The Saadian Tombs are located just outside Marrakech and were constructed during the reign of Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur in the late 16th century. This is the resting place of al-Mansur, his family, and other notable officials from that era. These tombs were discovered in 1917; restoration began shortly thereafter. Today, much of its original splendour has been restored. This form of Islamic art is one of the main characteristics of Moroccan architecture. It consists of geometrically patternedmosaics, used to ornament walls, ceilings, fountains, floors, pools and tables.

The cities of Fes, Marrakesh and Meknes in Morocco, remain the centres of this art.

This framework of expression arose from the need of Islamic artists to create spatial decorations that avoided depictions of living things, consistent with the teachings of Islamic law.
