Part VIII - Stellenbosch, S.A. with its Cape Dutch Architecture

Though it was late afternoon upon arrival on Saturday, November 23, we took a taxi from our Lanzerac Hotel and went to the beautiful town of Stellenbosch with its Cape Town Architecture.
Come along with us...
This is the Rhenish Mission Church, The Braak, Stellenbosch.
Date built 1823, Front Wing 1840, just click on link for more info about this Cape Dutch style building.
This is the top photo that I used in the news paper: My South Africa Publication... see below post.
St. Mary's Anglican Church, The Braak, Stellenbosch (click hyperlink for more info).
Again a Jacaranda tree is seen in front of this Church.
Oak trees line the streets in Stellenbosch.
St. Mary's Anglican Church from a different angle.
Stellenbosch, Burgher House 1797 in Cape Dutch style (click the hyperlink for more info).
We did walk back to our hotel Lanzerac, in a bit over half an hour time.
We thoroughly enjoyed the view of Vineyards against the Helderberg Mountain.
Walking the famous Stellenbosch Wine Route...
What a perfect ending of a day... Going back to our hotel for dinner and calling it a day.

Thanks for your visit and stay tuned for Part IX

  2. Those Cape Dutch houses are so pretty and of course having the mountain as a backdrop makes it all even more beautiful.

  7. Olá, tudo bem? Estou vendo que vocês estão muito bem.
    Amei viajar com vocês. Que lugar lindo. Um dia quero conhecer esse país. Minha filha estudou em Cape Town. Um dia ela quer voltar a morar aí. Viajar é a melhor coisa da vida.
    Meu marido Alfredo ama vinho, ele ficaria só nestes vinhedos. haha
    Quero desejar um Feliz Natal e um novo ano cheio de coisas boas e felicidades para você e sua família.
    Bjos
