Quick Cape Town Fact: One of the oldest traditions in Cape Town is still alive and well, startling visitors at precisely midday—every day. An old cannon at the top of Signal Hill is fired off, sending a resounding boom around the CBD. It was originally meant to announce approaching ships, to let traders know it was time to haul their wares down to the harbour.

Rumour has it the gun only failed once in those two centuries—because a spider interfered with the remote signal.
