The enormous granite monument is built on a hill and can be seen from all sides in Pretoria. The Voortrekker Monument is, without a doubt, a well-thought-out work of art with a lot of symbolism. No image is made for aesthetic value only – everything means something. When one stands in amazement in front of the monument, you find 299 stairs to climb, which lead to the entrance of the monument. On the upper stairs, there is an assegai gate and a wall that surrounds the monument.
