The Taal Monument is a must in Paarl! Not much to actually do there, but to see it and walk around the garden was really nice and impressive. We didn't realize how big it was until we were there. Very beautiful view from the monument also. Must pay to enter but it's super cheap so don't let that stop you

As a South African and Afrikaans myself I really enjoyed this experience and would recommend it to all....very well kept and informative.

A must see if you are visiting the Western Cape for the first time! This huge stone "finger" pointing upwards and the information supplied at the monument tells you the story of the Afrikaans language. Interesting setting on the Paarl Berg (Pearl Mountain) with it's distinctive round pearl shape!

I have always wanted to visit the Taalmonument because of its beautiful lines and I was not disappointed. It is truly a magnificent structure! The museum was, however, a big disappointment and really not worth the while. Very disinterested "guide" at the desk. Although you have to pay for access, it is not expensive and a good place to have a picnic and look at the beautiful views from the top of the hill.

When we got there and realised you had to pay to enter we didn't bother. Figured we could read about it on the internet. Good view from highway.
