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.

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

The memorial is set in a lovely park setting at one end of the Franschhoek main street. Well worth the walk to relax in the gardens.

Imposing and look at the mountains behind. Actually the front gate was padlocked, so I think you need to pay and pass through the museum next door to get up close.

The memorial monument and its gardens are kept clean and immaculate and are a fitting memorial to the Huguenot refugees who made such an impact on this area. Adjacent is the museum to Huguenot influence in South Africa. A splendid setting surrounded by grand mountain...More

My family and I spent two nights in Franschoek during our recent holiday to South Africa. You can find this monument at the end of the town. Set against the mountains in the background, this is worth spending 15-30 minutes to explore in order to...More
