The Western Cape Sights

Huguenot Monument

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The Huguenot Monument stands at the end of the main road through Franschhoek. It was built in 1948 to commemorate the contribution of the Huguenots to South Africa's development. The three arches symbolize the Holy Trinity, the sun and cross from the Huguenots' emblem, and the female figure in front represents Freedom of Conscience.
