We took a stall to this memorial monument during the morning before it was to hot, and it was really intresting to read about the history. It is also very beautiful and the surroundings are amazing. Worth a visit to be familiar with the history.

Surrounded by a lovely little park at the end of the main street, it also has a historical cemetery behind it and the museum beside it. There really isn't anything special to see and it may not hold any significance without being aware of the...More

There isn't much to the Huguenot Memorial Monument. It's an impressive monument given the mountainous backdrop. A 5 minute visit will do.

This Monument records the arrival of the French Huguenots. There is a charge to visit this Monument. There is not much to see so I think the charge is unnecessary.

I couldn't find anything of particular interest here. It's the type of place you visit if you have time to kill.

The main street of Franschoek deserves at least one hour stroll. What has attracted my attention during the last visit were the unusual sculptures

The monument looks nice but I could see it only from the distance since they charge money for entrance which is a bit extraordinary for such monuments. I wish they will change their policy soon so that people can have a proper visit.

While staying at the bottom end of town (very lovely), this Monument is situated at the top end of town, so for some exercise after a day at several wineries I walked from one end of town to the other and took in the sites....More

No need to pay to get in the park and to get closer, you can see the monument from the road and it is quite good enough
