A trip to Ghana would not be complete without a visit to Cape Coast, the capital city of Ghana's legendary Central Region.
Located one and a half hours directly West of Accra, Cape Coast is the hear of Ghana's rich historical past. It will offer you a unique view of Ghana as the first point of contact and former center of European colonial activity on Africa's West Coast. Three of the Central Region's most prominent fortifications, Cape Coast and Elmina Castles and Fort St. Jago, officially designated as World Heritage Sites by the United Nations, record the horror of the millions of Africans who were captured, enslaved and shipped to the Americas.

Address: Central region, main town
