THE HISTORY

The House of Spices was one of the most notable houses of Zanzibar Stone Town, belonging to an old family of Spice Traders. Spices from the Islands of Pemba and Zanzibar were collected here, spreading their fragrant aroma over the house and the surrounding narrows streets of Stone Town. Once in the house they were selected, ground and packed before being exported to Europe and to the Americas.
