Paarl Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Paarl gets its name from the huge granite mountain overlooking the town that glistens like a pearl after it rains. Here, as in Franschhoek, certain French place names attest to its Huguenot influences, and winemaking is also one of the town’s main activities. Paarl also boasts the Taalmonument and theAfrikaans Language Museum and, for a moment of relaxation, a crocodile farm.
