Trip Planner: Africa / Tanzania / Zanzibar Archipelago / Zanzibar Island / Zanzibar City / Stone Town / Old Slave Market/Anglican Cathedral
A coral stone Canterbury-style Church of Christ, Old Slave Market/Anglican Cathedral has been built on the site of the old slave market from when Zanzibar was a huge slaving center under the British-supported Muscat and Oman Sultanate. Next to the church, you can enter slave chambers in the cellars of the old Anglican Mission House, that's now a hostel. Built in 1873-1883, the cathedral's altar is believed to stand at the place of the old whipping post. Boasting a cross made out of the tree under which the heart of David Livingston was buried in 1873, this active cathedral features a huge rectangular bell tower with a clock. In the churchyard, view a concrete sculpture of slaves exiting a holding cell from underground made by a Swedish sculptor.
