Some interesting facts

Cape Town is the legislative capital of South Africa and is home to South Africa’s Parliament.
Situated in the uppermost corner of Company Gardens, it is from here that the President gives his State of the Nation Address, after the opening of Parliament, which involves several road closures and demarcated ‘no parking zones’ around the Gardens.
