Area Info:      

Tulbagh, set in a magnificent valley, is situated on Route 62 and is only 120 kms north of Cape Town. The valley is surrounded by three mountain ranges that are often covered in snow during winter. Against this splendid landscape, Tulbagh is famous for its unspoiled natural beauty and peaceful country lifestyle. The area was extensively damaged in a devastating earthquake in 1969 and many of the old buildings, of mostly Cape Dutch architecture, were all but destroyed. A huge national effort resulted in many of these buildings being restored to their former splendour. Tulbagh now boasts in excess of 30 national monuments. Visitors can stroll down Church Street and see the buildings as they were between 200 and 300 years ago. A number of museums in this historically significant town are worth a visit. Tulbagh boasts a number of excellent restaurants that cater to a wide range of tastes. Sampling the award winning wines on a tour of our internationally known wine estates is not to be missed.
