Grahamstown is known as the City of Saints because it has over forty religious buildings in this small city and its Anglican Cathedral is the diocesan seat of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.

Grahamstown hosts the biggest and most vibrant celebration of South Africa’s rich and multi-faceted culture - the annual National Arts festival, held each year in July during which the city becomes the country’s creative crucible.

One of Grahamstown’s rare gems is the Victorian Camera Obscura housed in the Observatory Museum. The obscura has a mirror that seems to magically reflect the town onto a large circular table.
