I went to Cape Coast Castle first, and when I went to this one, I immediately liked it better from far away arriving from Cape Coast. Unlike Cape Coast Castle, Elmina Castle is daily seen with wide open shores, and lagoon next to it with hundreds of fishing boars make it look all the more appealing. Not to mention Fort St. Jago from a hill above. It's quieter than CC Castle also, and the guide is of course very knowledgeable, except for souvenir shop stop here and there. If you only have time to go to one of two, I will recommend you choose Elmina and its castle.
