Where two oceans meet at the southern tip of the African continent, the Dutch East India Company (commonly called the VOC) built a bastion fort which they named Kasteel de Goede Hoop to replace the original wood and clay fort built by van Riebeeck upon his arrival in 1652 to serve as a refreshment station for ships en route to the east. This became their “offshore headquarters” in what is now Cape Town, South Africa
For centuries the Castle of Good Hope has played a central role in the development of South Africa. In its early days, the fortress housed a church, bakery, various workshops, living quarters, shops, and cells, among other facilities. Today it hosts a variety of museums and installations ranging from the Cape Heritage Museum and the Camissa Museum to the William Fehr Collection and Military Museum and can rightfully call itself one of the most important national heritage sites in South Africa and well worth a visit if you are in the City.
