Krotoa Memorial

Krotoa was an incredible leader of the Khoi nation. In August 2016, to celebrate this woman’s contribution to the history in the Cape, as part of the 350 year commemoration, the spirit of Krotoa was repatriated to her original place of burial at the Castle of Good Hope. A memorial in honour of her can be found next to the Chapel at the Castle today.


The Castle is home to three prestigious Cape Town museums. The Military Museum which is steeped in military history, the William Fehr Collection where you will find fine and interesting examples of paintings and decorative arts of special relevance to the Cape concerning the peoples and landscapes of early colonial South Africa and the permanent ceramic exhibition, FIRED, situated in the old granary at the Castle.

The in-house restaurant deli, Re5, situated in the front courtyard of the Castle of Good Hope, offers visitors delicious local snacks and light meals as well as a range of refreshing beverages. Re5 provides catering for all Castle functions, conferences and events and is also available for private events via our events department.
