This colonial fort is an intriguing example of Renaissance military architecture, built in 1595 the fort changed hands numerous times as it played a vital role in controlling trade of the Indian ocean. It is now a museum.
" The Portuguese and British Colonial styles combined withthat of Arab, Indian and African cultures all went to make Mombasa a colourful and I found a most fascinating city. i soon found myself enjoying in particular the old Arab quarter where I was able to watch the many craftsmen at work in their small shops making a variety of things from fancy wooden chests to furniture and coffee pots." - MH
