Castle of Good Hope

Castle of Good Hope, Cape Town

Castle of Good Hope

In 1652, under the command of Jan van Riebeeck, a small wooden fort was erected to guard the replenishment station (The Company's Garden) of the Dutch East India Company. By 1664 trouble was brewing between the British and the Dutch, and so over the next 15 years the massive pentagonal stone Castle of Good Hope came into being. As the finishing touch, a 300 kg bell was installed which was used to alert the citizens of impending danger and simply to announce the time. The castle is now the oldest and still one of the most impressive buildings in South Africa.
