Pella : Michelin's recommendations
Date palms, red mountains and the Orange River comprise the world of Pella, the South African date capital. The cathedral was built by two missionary fathers who settled here in the late 19C, with the sole help of the Encyclopedia of Industrial Arts.

Enjoy the lovely nearby Augrabies Falls and rafting on the river.
