This area of Johannesburg is filled with mixed themes and rife with history. A symbol of South Africa's journey to a deserved freedom, the Constitutional Court sits where the Old Fort Prison Complex used to house both political and common criminals -- names such as Robert Sobukwe, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were once trapped in these walls until its closure in 1983. This once oppressive site has been transformed into a monument of perseverance and justice. Guided and interactive tours are scheduled regularly.
