    Pass By: Huguenot Memorial Museum, Franschhoek 7690 South Africa

    Below is a description of the places that are available to visit.

    Enjoy a small and intimate working pottery studios in Franschhoek. Vuyisa Potina ‘Elvis’ is the local artist in residence and visitors are invited to visit his studio where he will share his story of success and possibly even let you try your hand at pottery.

    Relax in Ruth Paulse’s beautiful garden set amongst fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Ruth is famous for her delectable carrot cake and her produce is likely to come fresh from her own garden.

    A visit to Franschhoek is not complete without a photo being taken under the President Nelson Mandela staue at the prison where he spent his last days before the “Walked to Freedom”. The Mandela statue located in front of the prison commemorates this special part of South African history.

    The village of Pniel and the Werf with its historical monuments. has a very interesting link to the days of slavery and the religious history of the beautiful Dwarsrivier

    The Huguenot Memorial Museum & Monument is one of the most prominent features of Franschhoek. The statue is dedicated to the French Huguenots and the museum reflects the history and influences of their presence in the valley.

    In any community one of the most important services provided by the dedicated people of the townships are the Crèche. Without these facilities many people would have great difficulty in going out to work. All of them cater for between 20 to 40 children. The people who run these crèche are trained in pre-school education and put in a great deal of effort to make these places a happy experience for the children. These places will leave an impression in your mind never to be forgotten.

    A number of vineyards have been reorganised into trusts for which the employees are beneficiaries. Effectively the employees are “owners” benefitting from the profits of the vineyard. The wine estate offers a variety of guided farm experiences. Led primarily by farm residents, the tours offer rare personal insight into the vineyards, farm workers’ lives, and the cultural and musical heritage of the surrounding Cape Winelands. The beautiful Franschhoek wine farm estate also features a museum that explores the slave heritage of the area.
