Description The Castle of the Cape of Good Hope has been restored during the nineties. During the restoration of the inner courtyard, the team discovered the foundations of the early 18th century bakery and this pool. Both have since been researched and rebuilt from plans and paintings. It is said that the wife of his Excellency the governor would wade in this pool in full dress, provided that the eyes of the soldiers were kept occupied elsewhere!
