The Arab Fort (also known as Old Fort), located right next to The House of Wonders Museum, is a wonderful historical site that you should visit. Built between 1698 and 1701, the fort is an impressive structure with high walls, originally used as a defence against the Portuguese occupation. Then, it was used as a prison for the execution of criminals, while it has also served as a depot for the railway as well as a courtyard for the ladies tennis club. Today, you can have a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean from its towers or even watch drama and dance performance in the renovated open-air theatre.
