Great experience and friendly people.
The Fort is located in Mombasa City on the coast of Kenya. Designed by Giovanni Battista Cairati, the Portuguese built it in 1593-1596 to protect the port of Mombasa. The Fort is one of the most outstanding and well-preserved examples of 16th Portuguese military fortification and a landmark in the history of this type of construction. The property covers an area of 2.36 hectares and includes the Fort’s moat and immediate surroundings. During my visit to this fantastic tourist attraction, I learned the history behind it, which was very educative. Fort Jesus gives a beautiful view of the Indian Ocean. The guards are well trained, and the place is well kept with a clean washroom.
