The famous Fort Jesus

The famous Fort Jesus 1

Constructed as a military outpost by Portuguese in 1593 and now a museum, nothing will give you more inside in the melting pot that is Mombasa than Fort Jesus. Within its sick white walls designed to withstand bombardment, there’s a mélange of artefacts of various cultures that lived and prospered in Mombasa. You will note flowery decorations left by Omani Arabs in the Mazrui Hall. In another room, Portuguese sailors scratched graffiti of European frigates, Arabic dhows, and Swahili type.
