This is a lovely little square by the market area at the Cape Town waterfront. You can sit and get photographed with statues of the architects of peace following the end of apartheid.

Spent a few minutes thinking about each of these men who played such a part in the modern history of South Africa. Was glad for the reflection.

Noble Square, located near the V&A Waterfront is a small area with statues of South Africa's post-apartheid leaders, Albert Luthuli, Nelson Mandela, F. W. DeKlerk and Bishop Tutu. No charge.
