Well worth seeing and beautifully photogenic. Has to be seen alongside the museum adjacent to it. Leave yourself an hour or so for both.

This tall monument visually terminates the view at the end of Huguenot street. The main entrance is from the side - opposite the museum. The monument was built in 1948 to a design which could been created 100 years earlier. Perhaps the central figure of...More

It was so peaceful walking through the gardens of the memorial. Really worth a visit. The view of the mountain behind the monument is beautiful.

An excellent presentation of the history of the valley with masses of absorbing literature / information in many languages. The annex on the opposite side of the road should not be missed, all part of the initial entrance fee and all staff were most helpful

The R20 entrance fee keeps the gardens well-maintained, so it's worth the price. Pretty to look at and some nice photo opportunities. If you plan well, you can stay for a picnic, but we didn't.

We walked here from La Fontaine as a nice walk out of town. It's a nice monument, very well kept and looked after. Quite a few people were visiting whilst we were there, but it wasn't crowded. Worth an hour or so.

The video they have available inside the monument is very informative. The building and garden is worth a visit

Definitely not worth it to pay R50 for two adults and two kids to enter the garden, walk around the monument for 10 minutes and then go out again. And then, when you want to visit the museum, you have to pay the same amount...More
