Poignant monument to those fallen. We noted it was in good condition and all lettering could be read.

It's a small monument in a drab square and just happened to be at the start of our walk - I wouldn't make a special trip although the efforts of those named probably mean that's the least you could do!

very insignificant....easily missed and not worth to visit. It is in a square that misses any attractiveness.

Behind the town hall stands this mini-pyramid with the names of some of the Huguenot families who fled France for South Africa more than 300 years ago, inscribed on one side. One cannot help asking where the other names are... maybe originally there were inscriptions...More

This is a small monument erected behind the Town Hall in memory of the French Hugenot’s that came to South Africa in 1688. It is a small pyramid displaying the surnames of the Hugenot’s that came.
