When Protestantism was outlawed in France following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, hundreds of Huguenots fled France for places new. Nearly 300 of them arrived by ship at the Cape of Good Hope and many of these were given land by the then Dutch government in a valley called Oliphantshoek (Elephant Corner). The valley later became known as French Corner or Franschhoek. Their Huguenot Heritage is honoured today by the monument that stands at the top of the village. Most of the farms and vineyards in and around Franschhoek still have French names today.
