Take a stroll through Old Town Tulbagh to pick up the history and architectural importance of the area. An earthquake in 1969 destroyed many of the old buildings, but the restoration and rebuilding project that followed has left the town with one of the most authentic and complete colonial era street scenes in the country. Cape-Dutch buildings with their distinctive gables sit alongside Edwardian and Victorian architecture. Signs help to tell the stories of this historic part of town, describing the lives of former inhabitants and the efforts undertaken to rebuild the area after the earthquake.
