Ibn Battuta is one of the greatest travelers in history, journeying three times further than Marco Polo. "JOURNEY TO MECCA" tells the dramatic story of Ibn Battuta's perilous and awe-inspiring two year journey from Tangiers to Mecca in the 1320's, and includes extraordinary footage of the Hajj as it was experienced in the 14th century through dramatic re-creation.
