Cape_Point_E06 Cape of Lights - The Lighthouses of Cape Point

We’ve put together a series of 12 podcasts to bring the myths, legends and true stories of Cape Point to you, wherever you are.

In this episode, we learn about the beacons of safety and the brave men that spent a lonely existence keeping ships from ruin when rounding the Cape. We discover how a misguided position and the near-constant mists of Cape Point led to the wrecking of the Lusitania and the construction of a second lighthouse, and resulted in the most powerful light in Africa.

Listen to the rest of the stories of Cape Point here.
