Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town is a legislative capital of South Africa, colloquially named the Mother City.

The host of the 1999 Parliament of the World's Religions, Cape Town convened the interfaith movement to promote interreligious dialogue and cooperation and call the world's attention to the powerful role that religious and spiritual communities played in the struggle against apartheid.
