A PIECE OF HISTORY
Let’s go back in time for a moment. No idea exactly when, because nobody knows when Mombasa was really founded. We do know that it was already labeled as a major trading city in the 12th century. Ivory, copper, sesame and coconut, among others, were important export products. Everyone has left their own mark on this city and we find influences from all over the world here: remnants of British imperialism, influences from India, the Middle East, local culture and even remnants of the Portuguese colonial era. . It was also said: “He who dominates Mombasa, stands between the riches of Africa and the Indian Ocean trade”.
