Constantia Overview Information
Constantia is one of Cape Town's most leafy, green suburbs. The Constantia Valley is bounded on two sides by Table Mountain National Park and the southern gate of Kirstenbosch leads off the valley. Only 20 minutes from the City Bowl, Constantia is in the heart of a world-class wine route that includes some of the Cape's oldest wines and the Cape Winelands, including the farms of the Constantia Valley, are presently being put forward to UNESCO as a potential World Heritage Site.
Constantia is full of green belts and walking trails, including the Silverhurst trail with over 100 indigenous trees planted along the river. The Alphen trail, close to the Alphen Hotel is very popular with locals and their dogs and the Sillery Walk, along the Spaanschemacht River is perfect for languid afternoons. Historically, Constantia Valley took its name from the farm granted to Simon van der Stel in 1685. He apparently named it after Constanza, the daughter of his benefactor, Commissioner van Rheede.
