Groote Schuur | Attraction
The House that Cecil John Rhodes had built for himself around a hundred years ago.
Guided tours are held when the State President is in residence in Pretoria.
The official residence of the country's leader is Groote Schuur, the famous home that Sir Herbert Baker designed for Cecil John Rhodes on the slopes of Devil's Peak.
At the mention of Groote Schuur, most people immediately think of the hospital.
Yet Groote Schuur is also the house that Cecil John Rhodes had built for himself around a hundred years ago.
He bequeathed it to the nation - along with vast tracts of mountainside that stretched all the way to Constantia Nek, Kirstenbosch included.
