Cape Town is the second largest city in South Africa, with more than three million inhabitants and is considered to be the city with the highest quality of life on the entire African continent.
Although it is believed that the area that today occupies Cape Town could be inhabited for more than 10,000 years, there is no clear evidence and it is not until the 15th century with the arrival of Vasco de Gama that the city began to form as such. The city has received numerous influences throughout its history, highlighting the presence of British and Dutch.
Back in the 20th century, in 1948, the city suffered the consequences of apartheid, a law that separated the neighborhoods of black and white people and brought one of the darkest stages in the history of the city. 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 best-known speeches from the city's municipal building.
Cape Town is an interesting city for its history and spectacular natural surroundings. Below we review some of the most recommended places and activities.
