Bo-Kaap is located in the heart of the city at the foot of Signal Hill, this vibrant area is home to Cape Town Muslim community, consisting of those who have descended from the "Cape Malays," slaves brought by Dutch settlers from Indonesia, Malaysia, and other African countries. It is well known for its brightly painted, distinctive houses, some of which date back to the 18th century. The area wasn’t initially colorful because all houses were painted white. After the abolition of slavery, residents of Bo-Kaap painted their houses in bright colors as a sign of freedom.
