Facinating church and history- 200 years worth- with wooden benches, organ of 150 years, stain glass windows. Thoroughly enjoyed it- could have even stayed longer.

A typical Dutch Reformed church, complete with a steeple. There is nothing remarkable about this building, and similar ones can be seen in towns all over South Africa.

Like in most of the smaller towns in South Africa there is not much to explore in Beaufort West. The church is more than 100 years old and in good shape. It is on the main road, very close to the Christian Bernard Museum

This beautiful church seemed out of place in the dusty Karoo town in the middle of no where. Great architecture and well preserved.
