The monument itself is not much to see. However the setting in the surrounding landscape is beautiful. The history of the French Huguenots and the wine making is also interesting.

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.

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