Fort Jesus was built in 1593 by the Portuguese and the site was chosen at an entrance to the harbor. You'll have plenty of opportunities to see great views very much reminiscent of Pirates of the Caribbean.


Designed by an Italian Architect and Engineer, Joao, Batista Cairato, Fort Jesus has had a long turbulent history of hostilities. After the Portuguese built Fort Jesus, Omani Arabs attacked the Fort in 1696 and after Arab occupation, the Portuguese then made a brief reoccupation 1728 - 1729.


After returning back to Arab rule, the Fort was used as barracks for soldiers until 1895, when the Fort was converted into a prison by the British who by this stage had declared Kenya as a British protectorate. Prison cells were built and the barracks (huts) were removed.


Finally, just before Kenyan Independence (in 1963), on the 24th October 1958, Fort Jesus was declared a National Park and the Trustees of the Kenya National Parks became responsible for the Fort's upkeep. After archaeological excavations, Fort Jesus became a Museum in 1962 and since that time has been an interesting and important landmark in East Africa, drawing many visitors from all around.
