This national monument was built in memory of Cecil John Rhodes, the former Prime Minister of the Cape Colony, and is situated on the eastern slopes of Devil's Peak on a portion of land Rhodes set aside to preserve the beauty of the mountain. The steep steps of the neo-classical granite memorial offer sweeping views over the Cape Flats, stretching out to distant northern mountain ranges. Alongside the memorial is a large reserve for herds of eland, zebra and antelope. For those who want to sit and take in the view, there is a tearoom housed in an old stone cottage with a beautiful garden. This is also a popular starting point for hikes.
