About Cape Town
Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa, with over three million inhabitants and is considered to be the city with the best quality of life in the whole African continent.
Although it is believed that the area now occupied by Cape Town could have been inhabited for more than 10,000 years ago, there is very clear evidence that the city began to form in the fifteenth century with the arrival of Vasco de Gama. Cape Town has been influenced by numerous cultures throughout its history, particularly by the British and the Dutch.
In 1948 the city suffered the consequences of apartheid law, separating the neighbourhoods of black and white people and introducing one of the darkest episodes in the city’s history. In 1990 Cape Town was the scene of one of the most symbolic anti-apartheid acts, when Nelson Mandela was released and made one of his most famous speeches from the City Hall.
