“Nearby to the Kasbah are the famous Saadian Tombs, a catacombed palace for the dead. The tombs were built by the Saadian sultan (ruler) to shelter his family in death. Sealed by superstitious successors to the sultan, the tombs show the luxury and wealth rulers lavished on their families, even in death. There are 166 burial plots beneath the two-story structure, including the tomb called "The Chamber of Twelve Columns." Influenced by the Alhambra in Spain, the tombs are covered with painstakingly complicated hand-carved tiles.”
