The Old Fort, also known as Ngome Kongwe, is a historic fortification located in Stone Town, the old part of Zanzibar City. It was built in the late 17th century by the Omani Arabs and was used to defend the island against European powers. Today, the Old Fort is a popular tourist attraction that houses shops, cafes, and a cultural center.

The Old Dispensary, also known as the Ithnasheri Dispensary, is a beautiful building located in Stone Town that was once a hospital and dispensary. It was built in the late 19th century by a wealthy Indian merchant and features a unique blend of architectural styles, including Indian, Swahili, and European.
