Anglican Cathedral located at the end of the Company Gardens, it is certainly worth taking a few moments to walk through---they offer info for self-guided tours at the end of the main aisle. Former Archbishop Desmond Tutu was internationally known for leading an activist anti-apartheid movement from here--many recognize the Cathedral as a symbol of democracy. The stained glass windows are lovely and it is interesting to know that the Cathedral is still a work in progress. There is a jazz restaurant in the crypt named "The Crypt" that jazz enthusiasts recommended. Right across the street in St. George's Mall across from the Mandela Rhodes Foundation is a portion of the Berlin Wall. Check out my photos for more details.

This is the second church on this site, replacing one built in 1834. The Boer War interrupted construction, which dragged on for several decades after the foundation stone was laid on 1901. It’s best known for the prominent role it played as the centre for protest against the policy of Apartheid, led by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. It’s a ‘must visit’ site if you’re in Cape Town. There is also a jazz club in the crypt.

A lovely church that during apartheid was only one of few that accepted a diverse congregation. Worth a visit.
