Saadian Tombs

As wikipedia explains,

The Saadian tombs in Marrakech date back from the time of the sultan Ahmad al-Mansur (1578-1603). The tombs were only recently discovered (in 1917) and were restored.

This tomb has a vigilant guardian:

Frightful.

And I thought the leaves of this tree, which had some nut-like fruit as well, were very beautiful. Maybe dad knows what it is:

…but nearly all trees are beautiful, in my eyes.
