Cape Coast Castle (courtyard)
Slave forts and castles are all along the Ghanaian coast. One of the largest is the Swedish build castle in Cape Coast from 1652. The castle was later occupied by Danes and the British. All of them used the castle for slave trade. The castle could hold up to 1,500 slaves in the four dark slave dungeons.
