National Monuments[edit]

Graaff-Reinet has the highest number of national monuments in any city or town in South Africa: http://www.places.co.za/html/graaff_reinet.html BlandBaroque (talk) 11:13, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

References[edit]

Claims such as:

  • Graaff-Reinet is home to more national monuments than any other town or city in South Africa.

should definitely be cited. Far better not to make such claims at all, but rather to list the monuments. --NJR_ZA (talk) 05:27, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

"fourth oldest town in South Africa"[edit]

We're told that Graaff-Reinet comes just after Swellendam, which means that Swellendam was the third oldest. But if we click on the link to Swellendam, we're told that that it's the eighth oldest. Which of these is true? Given Swellendam's much greater proximity to the Cape (from which the colonisation of South Africa proceeded), and other things I've read about the development of the country, I'd expect the former. Perhaps '3' was misread as '8'?213.127.210.95 (talk) 20:00, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

The sources in both article are now working, so it's not clear. Greenman (talk) 17:14, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Found a ref clarifying that it is 4th, so have added that. Greenman (talk) 17:19, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
