Constitution Hill - Review

The last decade of the 19th century were the most heavily used years, and the fortification was built during the years of 1896-1899 to secure the premises of the Republic of South Africa from the invasion of the English troops.

During the apartheid struggle, apart from the white prisoners, the former President Nelson Mandela was allowed imprisonment stay in the medical wing of the prison, along with Joe Slovo, Bram Fischer and their companions. The court premises are allowed public visit for attending the hearings or visit to the art museum in the court section. Featured are more than 200 varieties of public and private art, especially the creations of Gerard Sekoto, William Kentridge, and Cecil Skotnes.
