Constitution Hill is a former prison that provides fascinating insight into South Africa's history. At the site, visitors can explore provocative exhibits at the Number Four museum, and the Old Fort museum.
It is the sight of the Notorious Old Fort Prison complex, commonly known as NUMBER FOUR, where thousands of ordinary criminals and political prisoners were brutally punished before the dawn of Democracy in 1994. Most of South Africa's leading Political activists, including Mahatma Ghandi and Nelson Mandela were detained here.
Nelson Mandela was imprisoned here before his Rivonia Trial in 1964 -
Constitution Hill is the new home of the Constitutional Court.
The old Awaiting Trial building has been transformed into the Constitutional Court of South Africa, a symbol of freedom, which works to protect the rights of the entire nation's people
The new court building was built using bricks from the demolished awaiting-trial wing of the former number 4 prison.
The court also houses an art gallery with a collection of more than 200contemporary artworks Guided tours of Constitutional Hill offer valuable insight into its rich history.
The first court session in the new building at this location was held in February 2004.
It was completed in 2003, and cost R102-120 million to build. The proposal for the bridge was to link up two main business areas of Braamfontein and Newtown as well as to rejuvenate and to a certain level modernise the inner city. The bridge was constructed over 42 railway lines without disturbing railway traffic and is 284 metres long.
Nelson Mandela Bridge is linking Braamfontein to the Johannesburg City centre The Bridge was designed by the two architects; Steve Thorne and Gordon Gibson, in 1993 in their urban design study of the Inner City of Johannesburg. They named the bridge the Nelson Mandela Bridge in recognition of the role Nelson Mandela was having in uniting South African society and the symbolism of linkage and unity provided by the bridge
