Castle of Good Hope
The Castle of Good Hope is a 17th century fortification that is situated in Cape Town, South Africa. The Castle of Good Hope is known as a star fort, which means it was built in the shape of star, a design that became popular in the age of gunpowder and was strategically more sound than a traditional design. The Castle of Good Hope was constructed by the Dutch East India Company in 1679 and remains the oldest colonial structure in all of South Africa. Now the castle is a major tourist attraction in Cape Town.
- Take a guided tour of the Castle of Good Hope, and an expert guide can explain the historic significance of the structures and the cultural importance of the castle to Cape Town.
- See the Castle of Good Hope as people would have in the past on a horse and carriage ride around the grounds, which is a peaceful way to take in the amazing scenery.
- See exhibits that tell the tale of Cape Town military history, and see an amazing collection of swords at the Castle Military Museum, a collection of military artefacts from South Africa.
