Paarl

Paarl is named after the Pearl Rock or Pearl Mountain. In 1687 Governor Simon Van Der Stel gave title to the first colonial farms in the area to the free burghers and the following year French Huguenots arrived from Europe and began farming in the Paarl Valley with its fertile soil and Mediterranean climate – like region.

Founded in 1690, Paarl is the Berg River Valley`s main centre, though the first man in the valley was Abraham Gabbema in 1657.Named after two huge granite domes which glistened in the morning sun known as Paarl Rock. In 1688 a number of Huguenots settled in the Paarl Valley becoming part of the cradle of the South African wine industry. Driving down Main Road there are museums, galleries, churches, and a mosaic of Cape Dutch, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco Archirecture. Paarl also has the revered Afrikaans Taal Museum which commemorates the origin and growth of Afrikaans and its people.

The settlers planted orchards , vegetables gardens and vineyards, thus beginning Paarl as a major wine and fruit producer.

Today Paarl is the most industrialized town outside of Cape Town, with more than 200 manufacturing plants including flour mills, a sawmill , a jam and fruit canning plant, and factories that produce cigarettes, textiles and furniture, dubbed the `red route` - it has 23 wineries,12 or so world class. A few famous examples of which are: - Nederberg, KWV, Spice Route, Backsberg,  Fairview, Laborie, Glen Carlou, Noble hill,  Avondale, Babylonstoren, Rhebokskloof and  Ridgeback Wine Estates.

The old Spice Route initiated by Charles Back in 1997 provides visitors the opportunity to taste local delicacies like biltong , draft beer , handmade chocolates & ice-cream and red & white wine parings.
