Petrusburg : Thaba'Nchu



The town of Thaba'Nchu, founded in 1873, got its independence in 1979 and was incorporated into the Republic of South Africa in 1994 with the birth of the "New South Africa". Thaba'Nchu is near the Kingdom of Lesotho and is probably best known for the Aran wool items of clothing hand-knitted by the local artisans.
