"The most beautiful colonial town Europeans ever built"

“This cape is the most stately thing and the fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth.” - Sir Francis Drake (1580)

My heart skipped a little beat when I read the forum post by JUANnOGNEN in this thread: Best European-Influenced City.

According to JUANnOGNEN, "Cape Town is an obvious candidate for the award of Most beautiful colonial town Europeans ever built."

If you haven't guessed it yet, Cape Town is my home city. After having lived in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town for 22 years, this city still continues to give me chills and thrills.

Cape Town, Kaapstad, Kapstadt, Città del Capo, Ciudad del Cabo, iKapa. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but according to me, this is the most beautiful city in the world.
