Marinid Tombs

The Marinid Tombs or Merenid Tombs are a few giant tombs on the hill above Fes, Morocco, possibly housing royalty or personages of some importance, dating back to the Marinid Dynasty. The tombs are in a high state of disrepair and are crumbling, but there is some script still to be seen in the stone. Their primary attraction for tourists is the views they afford of the ancient 1200-year-old medina below, especially at sunset.[1]
