This is our first full-length documentary (25 minutes) as part of a series. We focus on the towns of the Cape Winelands in this series.
Welcome to Paarl!
Paarl takes its name from the huge granite outcrop that stands proudly on the crest of Paarl Mountain. The town which was founded in 1687, is the third oldest settlement in South Africa and has a rich cultural and historical heritage.
The scenic beauty of Paarl compels visitors to explore the many cultural and historical attractions in the Drakenstein Valley, together with some of the most bountiful nature reserves in the surrounding mountains.
The town provides excellent conferencing venues and some of the most idyllic wedding venues in the Cape Winelands. Revel in beautiful fynbos-rich walks and hiking trails, cycle along superb mountain-biking trails or take a relaxing drive through the countryside to enjoy the spectacular scenery, followed by a leisurely lunch and fine wines from the region.
