Fort Jesus

Do read the history and the rich heritage of Fort Jesus built in 1593. Look at the size of the anchor, how many men must have been required to pull it up using metal chains on the deck of a galleon or a frigate! I was 7 or 8 years old when my grandfather brought me here for the first time.

In 1498 explorer Vasco De Gama was on of the first Portugese to arrive in Mombasa after rounding the Cape of Good Hope looking for a travel route to India.
