We wanted to turn around back in to Franschoek and then noticed this building. Quite nice to see how the olden day buildings looked inside. I really like the display where you look into an old farm house - quite interesting.

Well worth a visit just to see how 16th & 17th Century French Protestants suffered severe persecution at the hands of the Catholic majority. South Africa became the beneficiaries of the huge influx of highly skilled Huguenots.
