Elmina Castle

This fort is Ghana’s best preserved and most photographed. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a testament to its historical role in colonial West Africa and its strategic importance in the gold and then the slave trade.  Visitors at the St. George's Castle (often called 'Elmina Castle') can visit the former storehouses and slave dungeons, chapels and governor's chamber. Another scene of interest is the cell where a King of Asante was once held prisoner. Admission Fees for adult foreigners USD 7.00 or its equivalent in Ghana cedis.
