Bartolomeus Dias Park

I have posted about the Pier Street Mosque before and in that picture a big stone is visible in the foreground. Unbeknown to probably the majority of Port Elizabethans, the open area next to the mosque is the Bartholomeus Dias Park. In front of the stone is a marble plaque with information about Diaz's journey while the stone acts as a monument.

  1. Historical monuments serve to remind us of where we come from, or more specifically how we became what we are.

    Did the dedication of the park form part of the 1988 celebrations, like with the Dias Cross on Market Square?
