The Cape Town City Hall, built in 1905, was the site of Nelson Mandela’s first speech as a free man, just hours after his release from 27 years’ imprisonment. It now houses a permanent exhibition dedicated to Mandela, while the auditorium is the main performance space of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra.
