Paarl gets its name from the huge granite mountain overlooking the town that glistens like a pearl after it rains. Here, as in Franschhoek, certain French place names attest to its Huguenot influences, and winemaking is also one of the town's main activities. Paarl also boasts the Taalmonument and the Afrikaanse Taalmuseum and, for a moment of relaxation, a crocodile farm.
