Swellendam

Swellendam was founded in 1746 by the Governor of the Cape Province, Hendrik Swellengrebel, and his wife Helena ten Damme. Swellendam is the third-oldest town in South Africa. Numerous buildings, both in the Cape Dutch and the Victorian styles, stand witness to the town's rich history. The Drostdy from the year 1749 is worth a visit. It used to be the governor's seat and nowadays houses a cultural history museum.
