Ghana’s Cape Coast Castle is one of the oldest historical sites on the country’s southern coast. Today, it has evolved into one of Ghana’s most popular tourist hubs and everyone wants to go. Between influencers and celebrities like Michael Jai White, Anthony Anderson, Steve Harvey, RHOA’s Cynthia Bailey, President Barack Obama, and first lady Michelle Obama, the Year of the Return campaign saw an influx of frequent travelers and tourists returning Africa and reconnecting with their ancestral roots. 2019 alone brought in 200,000 visitors and a $1.9 billion boost to Ghana’s economy. Thousands of guests are accompanied on a tour of Ghanaian culture and the slave castles during their annual events. Guests are able to view the cannons, tour the Dalzel Tower, and journey inside dark dungeons where slaves were held. Thousands took their last steps through the Door of No Return, one of the most known parts of the Cape Coast Castle, before being led onto ships during the Middle Passage. Although it’s a beautiful sight to see, the historical and cultural impact of the castle’s history is inevitable. The Year of Return marked the 400-year anniversary of the birth of the American slave trade, where enslaved Africans were brought to Virginia. Millions of Africans were captured on ships and sold as slaves to the Caribbean, South America, and the U.S., amongst other countries. The Elmina fort was the first European safehouse built by the Portuguese in 1482, according to Face to Face Africa. As the slave economy grew, and more forts were built over the years, the property was seized back and forth between various European countries before the British obtained possession in 1664 and named it “Cape Coast Castle.”

Upon visiting, you will experience the physical history of the slave trade, the impact of which is still felt beyond the shores of Africa today. Most visitors to Ghana tour Elmina Castle, because of its history as a major trans-Atlantic slave hub. Originally, Elmina Castle was not built for the purpose of holding and trading slaves, but instead as a trading post for gold and other African goods. It is from this trade that the name "Elmina" was derived from the Portuguese name for "Da Costa de el Mina de Ouro" (The Coast of Gold Mines) Central Elmina Central Elmina today is an historic place. Dominated by the massive Elmina Castle, the central town is also home to the smaller, hilltop Fort San Jago, a number of impressive Posuban shrines and a busy fishing lagoon. This is a location with a lot of attractions that will keep you busy experiencing the history, culture and life of Ghana. Separate walking tours of Elmina are available and are very well received by our guests.
