Signal Hill

A mountain or a hill?

Signal hill

Is Signal Hill a mountain or a hill? That is a question that many have when viewing this flat shaped border between Cape Town city and Atlantic Seaboard for the first time. The hill, or mountain is referred to as the tail of Lions Head. Signal Hill offers wide expansive views of both the ocean and city, making this location perfect for sunrise or sunset. Any time you want to think of Signal Hill as a mountain, it's not. Cape Town has a high standard for these things, usually locals refer to it as a hill, even though it would seem higher than most mountains internationally. This proves the point, that what you think is dependent on where you come from.
