The Campanile was built in 1920 to mark the centenary of the arrival of the 1820 settlers who came from Britain to help populate the frontier of the Eastern Cape.
Taller than it looks here, the Campanile is a tall tall tall (ok you get the idea, it has 204 steps, which your intrepid blog hosts staggered up in the interests of unusual photos, which we'll post in the next few days.)


  1. Very original. I love the angle and lines in this photo and the colour is rich. Great job!

  2. I love the angle of the photo. It makes the building look very imposing.
    Well done for climbing to the top too!

  3. Great photo! Very impressive building!

  4. Yes, that looks like a long way to the top. But, after seeing the views in your subsequent posts, the effort was worth it. I can commiserate with you, though, since I climbed to the top of the church on Monmarte in Paris. I was impressed by how worn the old stone steps were, and felt sorry for the priests that climbed those steps daily to ring the bells.
