Paternoster is exactly how many who’ve been there described it. It’s a little piece of Greece with whitewashed cottages, exquisite shorelines, charming restaurants and home to local fishermen; giving the entire village a romantic air of nostalgia.
All the towns are not the same. They are different in history, characteristics, religion, faith, people and food. Especially, the food; always viciously searching for relatively unknown attractions, eateries and stories. Yet somehow Vredenburg gave me none of that.
The historic Western Cape town of Piketberg looks half-asleep as we arrived on a Tuesday afternoon but with its rigged mountains and settled beauty, it’s no wonder people prefer admiring the town in stillness instead of making it a sort after tourist attraction.
