Anomabou's Fort - Ghana
Anomabou's Fort

In 1674, the British built a small fort using more durable materials and called it Fort Charles, after the reigning monarch King Charles II. However, it was abandoned in order to concentrate efforts and costs on Fort Carolusburg at Cape Coast.
These days they use it as a prison, but you still can find it on the beach in Anomabou town.

Fort Amsterdam - Ghana
Fort Amsterdam

Fort Amsterdam is one of the many forts along the Ghanaian coastline.
The ruins are on top of a hill near the town of Kormantse.
This place isn’t a tourist hotspot, but you’ll always find a guide inside the building, who will tell you about the history of the fort.
He’ll expect a small fee(5000cedi) for his services.

Directions: Along the road Accra-Cape Coast
