Since 1806, the Noon Gun has been a historic time signal in Cape Town. The gun is located on Signal Hill, a few kilometers from the center of Cape Town city. The gun was set up in 1901 by the British colony and was originally used to announce the arrival of ships to the port and fire time signals that allowed ships in port to check the accuracy of their marine chronometers.
