Nice atmosphere and often hosts music and theater events. A quick visit that isn't overly impressive but worth a minute just to see what it is.

The Old Fort of Zanzibar has become something of a beacon of activity in Stone Town. It's the oldest structure on the island, dating back to the 1600's and today hosts nearly daily cultural activities and performances. It's a gathering place, starting point for many tours of Stone Town and the surrounding countryside and a lovely place to wander on a lazy afternoon near the water.

Nella capitale di Zanzibar, un edificio molto importante è l’antica fortificazione, che è stata costruita dagli arabi verso il XVII secolo. Interamente in pietra, la fortezza è servita prima per difendersi dai portoghesi, poi per ospitare i detenuti ed in seguito è diventata una caserma. Ha cambiato più volte faccia dunque questo Vecchio Forte ed oggi ha al suo interno vari negozi ed un teatro dal calendario ricco di eventi.
