As you enter the town of Franschhoek, Main road becomes another road and as you drive on, you suddenly see the perfect centerpiece the Hugenot memorial. The whitish structure is in perfect contrast to the green lawns and mountain that makes a perfect backdrop. There is an iron plate with inscriptions on the memorial and you can enter the grounds once you bought tickets from the museum. The area is meticulously maintained and I appreciated that greatly.

Took my wife here for her first time (I came once before on a school tour). Lovely historical and spiritual place. Tranquil and peaceful. It is middle of winter now, but in summer, could sit here with a blanket and just be one with God.

Open to the public. Unless you have a particular interest in the story of the Huguenots, you might not find this memorial to be a must-see. It has a museum which we did not enter. The grounds are nice and the surrounding mountains are impressive.

A beautiful, serene and tranquil setting, well worth the very reasonable ticket price. Take time to wonder around, enjoy the stunning beauty of the surrounding mountains and don't miss a visit to the museum just across the car park.

I did not experience the museum but the centuries-old cemetery is very cool to walk through and open to the public. Lots of good photos set against the mountains and valley scenery.
