One for the lovers of history is the Iziko Slave Lodge built in 1679, which have been transformed into a museum that documents the Capeâ€™s role in the Indian Ocean slave trade route, where slaves were brought to the Cape from Indonesia, India-Ceylon, Madagascar and Mozambique.
An exhibit of the difficult circumstances slaves had to endure aboard the slave ships, unique features commemorating the slave inmates and an audio-visual tour into the oppressive conditions slaves suffered under in the Slave Lodge will give you greater insight and understanding of the history that shaped the rich culture of the unique blend of people walking the streets of this diverse city.
