Old Town is an area of Mombasa, Kenya. Situated on the south-east side of Mombasa Island, the Old Town covers an area of 72 hectares (180 acres), and is inhabited by a mix of local, Arab, Asian, Portuguese and British settlers.
In 1997, the Old Town and Fort Jesus were submitted by the National Museums of Kenya for selection in UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites.
The area is located to the east of Mombasa Island, adjacent to Tudor Creek.
Buildings in the Old Town are influenced by Mombasa's trade culture, with many examples of Portuguese and Islamic architecture.
The Portuguese Fort Jesus is located in the Old Town, and is Mombasa's most popular tourist attraction.
