It's almost derelict exterior is deceiving. Inside it's nearly immaculate and houses sobering reminders of the tragic history of this site, formerly a slave market, that has been transformed into something inspiring and beautiful.

The Anglican Cathedral Christ Church (or Church Of Christ) is a landmark historical church in stone Town, Zanzibar. As well as one of the most prominent examples of early christian architecture in East Africa. It was built in ten years, starting from 1873, based on a vision of Edward Steere, third Anglican Bishop of Zanzibar who actively contributed to the design.
As most buildings in stone Town, it is made mostly of coral stone. It has a unique concrete roof shaped in an unusual barrel vault (that was Steere's idea) and the overral structure mixes the perpendicular gothic and Islamic details. The Cathedral was consecrated in 1903 and named after the canterbury Cathedral.Recommended for:History Buffs
