Paarl has the longest main road in the country stretching a full 8 miles (12,8km)! The road is so long and straight because it was the route used by wagons heading to the north. What adds to the uniqueness of this road is the vineyards in between businesses and family homes. It is one of the best-preserved streets in the country with many original buildings with architectural styles of the last 250 years. Here are visiting options to explore on the 8 MILE ROUTE MEANDER – NORTH.
