Brief Description
The Stone Town of Zanzibar is a fine example of the Swahili coastal trading towns of East Africa.

It retains its urban fabric and townscape virtually intact and contains many fine buildings that reflect its particular culture, which has brought together and homogenized disparate elements of the cultures of Africa, the Arab region, India, and Europe over more than a millennium.

Justification for Inscription

Criterion ii: The Stone Town of Zanzibar is an outstanding material manifestation of cultural fusion and harmonization.

Criterion iii: For many centuries there was intense seaborne trading activity between Asia and Africa, and this is illustrated in an exceptional manner by the architecture and urban structure of the Stone Town.

Criterion vi: Zanzibar has great symbolic importance in the suppression of slavery, since it was one of the main slave-trading ports in East Africa and also the base from which its opponents such as David Livingstone conducted their campaign.
