Constitution Hill

Constitution Hill houses the South African constitutional court - the highest court in the country. It was built on the grounds  of a former prison, notorious during apartheid for enforcing the discriminatory laws  of the time. The majority of inmates were brought here for protesting or disobeying unjust and racist apartheid laws. 

By situating the court here, South Africa is striving to build a bright future on the foundations of a terrible past.
