Cape Town’s Famous Landmarks – A Cape Town Tourism Photo Essay
The City of Cape Town has a diverse character, architecturally speaking. With colourful homes and streets in the Bo-Kaap, a little more modernity on Thibault Square, one of a kind lighthouses, and the iconic City Hall, Cape Town offers many sites on which to feast your eyes when walking or driving around the city.
The City Hall resonates with history, the site of so many important events in South Africa’s past.
Thibault Square was named in honour of Louis Michel Thibault, commemorating the wonderful architecture and planning he brought to the city.
No one can dispute the beauty and history of De Tuynhuys. It is a part of the Company’s Garden, part of the city, and now the office of the State President.
The lighthouse at Mouille Point stands near to the site of the Seafarer’s sinking in July 1966.
The charisma and colour of the Bo-Kaap intriques locals and tourists alike.
