Elmina, Ghana
Get some education in history by visiting Elmina
Castle, Ghana, this summer. Elmina was erected by the Portuguese in 1482. The
oldest European building in existence below the Sahara, it was the first
trading post built on the Gulf of Guinea. It was first established as a trade
settlement but the castle later became one of the most important stops on the
route of the Atlantic Slave trade.  About 12 million Africans walked
through “the door of no return” into slavery from the Elmina Castle. It is a
great place to be this summer.

destination for eco tourists, bird watchers and hikers.  You can have a
