Full description
Explore the Castle of Good Hope, one of the oldest buildings in Cape Town. Originally built as a fort bastion, in 1936 the castle was declared a historical monument (now a provincial heritage site). On your visit, admire the best-preserved example of a Dutch East India Company fort following restoration work in the 1980s.
