Zanzibar's Stone Town | Tanzania


Postcard
The Zanzibar Archipelago comprises numerous small islands and two large ones: Zanzibar and Pemba. Zanzibar’s historic centre is known as Stone Town, a World Heritage Site.

Most of the houses that can be seen today were built in the 19th century when Zanzibar was one of the most important trading centers in the Indian Ocean region. Little has changed in the last 200 years. It is a place of winding alleys, bustling bazaars, mosques and grand Arab houses.
