A few km’s through Constantia suburbs and we arrive at Schoenstatt Shrine. You are encouraged to light a candle and sit in the shrine to set intentions for your day. Next on to Groot Constantia wine farm, a Kramat sacred space on Klein Constantia wine farm, through forests, greenbelts, fynbos thickets and the community of Westlake.
