City Hall Pictures
The Cape Town City Hall is located in Darling Street and offers a fantastic view of the Grand Parade. The hall was built in 1905 in the old-Italian Renaissance style and is the last of its kind in the city. Imposing and incredibly impressive mosaic floors, marble stairs and an organ with 3 165 pipes decorate the interior of the City Hall. Sir George Martin, who also constructed the St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, designed the organ. On special occasions 39 bells are rung from the 61-meter miniature Big Ben-like tower, which is the largest carillon in South Africa. Also find Cape Town Accommodation near the City Centre.
