Unlike the rest of Mombasa city, Fort Jesus looks better today than it did 100 years ago. It has been well maintained and is in good repair - for a 600-year-old building! It's also got an unobtrusive museum within with a lot of intelligently laid out artefacts and sites of interest throughout the fortress that reek of its multi-ethnic history. You can see why the Portuguese built it - and why it has remained a strategic emplacement ever since.
