Lonely Planet review

At the north end of the Braak, an open stretch of grass, you’ll find the neo-Gothic St Mary’s on the Braak Church , completed in 1852. To the west of the church is the VOC Kruithuis , which was built in 1777 to store the town’s weapons and gunpowder and now houses a small military museum. On the northwest corner of the square is Fick House , also known as the Burgerhuis, a fine example of Cape Dutch style from the late 18th century.
