One of the famous slave castle on the Ghana coast which was featured in the Werner Herzog movie Cobra Verde with Klaus Kinski. A sad part of Africa's history because of the slave trade but also an eye opener as the slave trade was started by the Africans themselves and was later taken over by Europeans.
The building is well preserved although maintenance could be better. Nice bookshop where one can buy a book called"Ama" which is a true story of a slave.
After the castle go and walk through the fish market which is an interesting experience.
