Cape Cross

About

In 1486, the early Portuguese explorer, Diogo Cao, erected a padrao or cross on a small rocky outcrop along the desolate and unforgiving shores that hug the Skeleton Coast. Battered by sudden squalls and fierce windstorms, blasted by the shifting desert sands and baked under a relentless sun, the cross remained undisturbed by Europeans for four centuries.

Cape Cross has witnessed many a shipwreck and maritime disaster and is home to a replica padrao or cross that stands on a terraced platform within the seal reserve.
