Paarl is the third oldest town and European settlement in South Africa and the largest town in the Cape Winelands.
Although Paarl is fairly important to the economy of the Western Cape, it didn’t lose much of its beauty. The streets that are lined with trees and the elegant facades give Paarl its rustic charm.
The 11km long Main Street, at the foot of Paarl mountain, is a good starting point for those who want to explore this region. At both sides of the street you will find beautiful 18th and 19th century Cape Dutch and Victorian houses.
The Paarl wine route is the second oldest of South-Africa. It has got a diversity of cellars, of which most are open to the public. But there is more than just Paarl.
From here you can easily do daytrips to Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town, Table Mountain, Robben Island, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Wellington, Hermanus and much more idyllic places, so the ideal base for those who want to scout the region.
