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...More

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.

A good challenge for a lazy afternoon. Find the tomb of Ibn Battouta. Find your way through the tiny passages in the Tanger medina.

It was quite difficult to find this place, and it was only thanks to my husband's amazing map reading skills that we found it. We headed towards it from the Kasbah, as it was nearer that side of the town. First heard of Ibn Battutah...More

There is admittedly not much to see her but the plaque on his tomb. I'm not entirely sure if you can visit inside the tomb but didn't appear so. It is at the end of a very long and narrow street in the medina and...More
