These ruins are one of the few historical sites in Kenya and are located in the village of Gede, not far from the most famous city of Watamu.
The ruins of the Arab city, date back to the period between the thirteenth and seventeenth century.
The town had a population of over 2500 people, it was surrounded by the thick vegetation of the Arabuko Sokoke Forest and it was protected by two city walls.
Inside the walls there are the ruins of three mosques, the ones of the sultan’s palace and of several houses. Moreover, many objects coming from different parts of the world have been found in this location.
In 2000 a museum has been opened where you can see all the objects that were found at the site and where you are introduced to the Swahili culture.
In addition to the museum, inside the park there is a platform from where you can enjoy a fantastic view and that is also ideal for bird watching.
