This pillar was built by the greatest navigator of all time~Vasco da Gama.

More impressive for what it represents-the genesis of the age of exploration than the edifice itself.

The history behind the pillar is amazing but if you visit only this site, 500KES is too much. However, you have to know that the guide, Malindi Museum and Portuguese chapel visits are included to your ticket.

Simply stunning and historic. You will ask yourself: Am I still in Kenya? Conveniently located, 5 minutes walk from Breathe Easy Beach Cottage.
