Fort Jesus is one of Kenya’s best preserved pieces of history.
Being as a role model of well-preserved world heritage, the fort has become one of Kenya’s most popular tourist destinations.
Fort Jesus was built in 1593 by the Portuguese. Withstanding the test of time, wind and water, the fort is rated by locals as the number one tourist site in Africa.
It was declared a UNESCO world heritage site about four years ago.
For tourists visiting the country, this oldest town in Kenya remains the best tourist destination as it was built at a vantage point with clear sight of oncoming water vessels and almost the whole coastal strip.
Located along the famous Mombasa beach where tourists flock every year for a change of climate, Fort Jesus has established itself as a must see destination both for recreational and educational purposes.
