Learn About This Location
Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and traditional African beliefs exist together peacefully in this distinctively multicultural city. With South Africa’s troubled history, this kind of pluralistic harmony was hard to achieve and remains fragile: most residents have a fascinating, heart-wrenching story about the subject. Cape Town is a city of pioneers – from the Afrikaner descendants of the original colonists and the majority black community to the descendants of Jewish immigrants and more recently the Xhosa transplants from the Eastern Cape. They all bring unique flavours to Cape Town’s rich creole melting pot.
