"Slave castles" Ghana Things to Do Tip by Whoopi
Ghana Things to Do: 104 reviews and 273 photos
Along the coast there are many old slavecastles and fortresses. The most fameous one is Elmina castle. It is the biggest but I don't recommend it as it is made too much of a touristattraction. Cape Coast castle on the other hand is very interesting. They have preserved the horrible castle so well that is is almost as the slaves are still in the dungeons.... You can still see the marks on the solid stone walls from desperate slaves clawing to get out, and you can also see how the slavetraders' quarters are conveniently above the female slave dungeon so they could pick any girl they wanted for the night..
Directions: Cape Coast
