World City Histories


Sofala, Mozambique

700 A.D.

One of the oldest documented harbors in southern Africa, Sofala — now known as Nova Sofala — was situated on the edge of an estuary formed by the Buzi River. The city participated in the gold trade and became the most dominant coastal city in the region during the 1800s and 1900s.
