town is at the base of one of the oldest mountain passes in the country,
Bain's Kloof Pass, built by master road-builder Andrew Geddes Bain. The
beauty of the area is best viewed on foot, by horse or by car in order
to take in the scenery of nature, fynbos, wine, olives and the historical
buildings to name but a few. The pass up to Bain's Kloof winds through
pine tree plantations, to the summit where on a clear day you can see a
vast area, consisting of the Swartland to the left, home of the extensive
wheat fields, the Cape Flats and Cape Town to the right, and the sun glimmering
on the sea.
