Celebrating the South African Constitutional Court

The Constitutional Court is a powerful reminder of how far the country has come. Its Great African Steps are built of the bricks from Number Four prison, holding within them the memories of the countless prisoners denied their dignity. Its design is symbolic of "justice under a tree"; it is a masterpiece of the South African transition.

Constitution Hill, seat of the Constitutional Court and symbol of South Africa's journey, has been named Preferred Heritage Destination of the Year. It is an impressive complex, sitting atop Johannesburg, from where it centres the country's past, present and future.
