  • Constitution Hill
    Constitution Hill functioned as a prison during apartheid era. It is known for its harsh treatment of prisoners. Criminals and political activists like Mahatma Gandhi in 1906 were held at the prison.
  • Mandela House (Soweto)
    Mandela House is the house where Nelson Mandela lived until he was forced underground in 1961. It is located on the corner of Vilakazi and Ngakane Street. He moved there in 1946. In 1999 it was declared a National Heritage Site.
  • Mandela Yard (Alexandra)
    When Nelson Mandela first came to Johannesburg in 1940 he rented a single room in the Mandela Yard area. In a “Long Walk to Freedom” he described the residence as “no more than a shack, with a dirt floor, no heat, no electricity, no running water. But it was a place of my own and I was happy to have it.”
     
  • Lilieslief Farm
    The Farm was secretly used by African National Congress activists in the 1960s. It provided a secure location where the underground leadership could meet. Nelson Mandela secretly lived and operated at the Farm under the name of David Motsamayi.
     
  • Chancellor House
    The Chancellor House is a building that once housed the law firm of Nelson Mandela and Oliver Tambo. Between 1952 and 1956, Mandela and Tambo had a thriving law practice, trying to help others who were accused of crimes against the state and disobeying the draconian laws of the time. Nowadays it is a national heritage site.
