The Old Dispensary

The Old Dispensary, as its name would imply, served as an old dispensary in the first half of the 20th century. Located in a prime position on the seafront, it is one of Stone Town's most finely decorated buildings, a symbol of the multi-cultural architecture and heritage of the town. Ornate wooden carved balconies sit alongside intricate stained glass windows and typically European neo-classical features. The interior of the Old Dispensary is just as elegant as the outside with a covered courtyard and carved bridges. There's also a small museum capturing the colourful history of Zanzibar.
