Cape Town - The Castle of Good Hope's control board CEO Calvyn Gilfellan is currently in France visiting the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany and the Museum of History in Nantes.  

The Nantes Castle is a 550 year old fortification designed and built more or less around similar purposes as Cape Town’s 350 year old Castle of Good Hope.

The objectives of the visit are to gain as much first-hand knowledge, expertise and experience from his French counterparts and their heritage offering and in return share experiences and expertise managing South Africa’s oldest, surviving colonial building.
