Cape Town Business Travel Guide - - Landmark Attractions -

“Used as a prison from the early days of the VOC right up un­til 1996, this Unesco World Her­itage site is pre­served as a me­mo­rial to those such as Nel­son Man­dela who spent many years in­car­cer­ated here,” notes Lonely Planet re­gard­ing Robben Island; a site which can only be vis­ited via a four-hour ferry tour, but that re­wards you with a mix­ture of scenery, ar­chi­tec­ture and his­tory to en­cap­su­late the his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of some of South Africa’s most im­por­tant events.
