A bit tricky to find in the Medina, but don't expect to find a building full of tributes. The Tomb seems locked away and there is no access inside, so its best to treat it as a memorial and just read the outside info on why the guy was a somebody. Honestly speaking, you're not missing anything by giving it a miss, although his name has been used a few times in the city for renaming. As other reviews have listed a phone number being on the door to have a chance of entering, but we didn't notice the number. With this process the tomb's popularity says it all..

After i visited fourth time Tangier, this time finally found this place. It seems like the marking of the place is only from one side of the old city. I found it only on Kasbah square, when used side gate to return to the old city, on the same side like Cafe Le Blue salon - gate is called Bab El Assa. When i finally found it, place itself was closed, but has a phone number on the door if you must see it inside. I didnt call. Explanation about the place and famous person who is believed to be buried here, table is on the wall.

I’m not sure if everyone knows about him, but he was called the Muslim Marco Polo. He traveled for 35 years around the Middle East and Africa and kept extensive diaries of his travels. There is a phone number posted on his burial place so you can call the person with the key if you want to see inside.

This is nothing but a house in the medina with a sign on. It is not normally open, so basically there is nothing to see as a tomb. But by all means, walk around the medina, drop by enjoy the area.

Ibn Battuta (ibn battouta in French) is famous in history. As a kid I learned about him at school in History & Geography classes. So I was eager to visit his resting place. It’s not easy to find it nor is it advertised. It’s a shame that such a famous personality is not valued in his home country or his home city of Tangiers.
