Constitution Hill information
Inspiring Constitution Hill is one of the city’s most important attractions. It offers travellers interested in the modern South African story an integral understanding of the legal and historical ramifications of the struggle. The development focuses on South Africa’s new Constitutional Court, built within the ramparts of the Old Fort, which dates from 1892 and was once a notorious prison, where many of the country’s high-profile political activists, including Nelson Mandela and Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi, were held.
The modern structure incorporates sections of the old prison walls, plus large windows that allow visitors to watch the proceedings.
