Cultural & Heritage in Town
Cape Town is not known as the “Mother City” for nothing. It is here that one comes across a 240-000-000-year-old mountain, and some of the earliest ever recorded communities lived in sight of Table Mountain 27 000 years ago.
Cape Town in many ways is where the history of Southern Africa was forged.
Starting from Bartholomeu Dias, a Portuguese explorer, to Vasco da Gama and the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck in 1652.
Surviving the difficulties of the Apartheid era to jumping to the vibrant bright colours of the Cape Malay community, Cape Town has plenty to tell you.
The Huguenot Memorial Monument in Franschhoek was inaugurated on April 17th, 1948.
With its simplicity and elegance of line the monument displays a historic French character.
The female figure, with the Bible in her right hand and broken chain in her left hand, personifies the spirit of religious freedom.
Dorp Street, Stellenbosch
A stroll down Dorp Street is a charming experience that resonates through the centuries.
The distinctive Cape-Dutch architecture, in this, the oldest town in South Africa, which combines gorgeously with ancient, gnarled oaks to line this old wagon road.
This entire street is a national heritage sight.
Afrikaans Language Monument
The Afrikaans Language Monument is located on a hill overlooking Paarl, Western Cape Province.
Officially opened on 10 October 1975, it commemorates the semi centenary of Afrikaans being declared an official language of South Africa separate from Dutch.
