Old Cape Town

7 Comments

Cape Town (South Africa)  has seen many changes since it was inhabited by the native Khoi and was first visited by Bartholomew Dias in 1488. The town was a Dutch trading post under Jan Van Riebeeck, and then came under British rule in 1814. Since then it has seen a lot of change and become a unique town with its own unique mix of culture.
