Cape Town


The urban history of Cape Town, the home to South Africa’s seat of parliament, dates back to the 17th century when Jan van Riebeeck of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) established a way station for European ships traveling to the Dutch East Indies. The first harbour construction in the, then known, Table Bay was a simple jetty built in 1654. Due to violent winds and winter storms in the area, cargo loss and ship wrecks were common. After the first breakwater was build in 1860 extensive port expansion followed. The port of Cape Town now boasts world-class facilities and its iconic features form an integral role in defining the urban experience of the Mother City*. *As depicted here, the Gantry Cranes in the port can often be seen peering through thick fog and mist announcing themselves as clear urban landmarks within Cape Town’s cityscape.
