Are you a lover of monuments and archaeological sites? If yes, then this tour is a must do for you.  Explore the oldest buildings in sub-Saharan Africa, various slave castles and forts among others. These fortified trading posts, founded between 1482 and 1786 and stretching for about 310 miles along the Ghanaian sides between Keta in the east and Beyin in the west, marked the trade routes that the Portuguese had traced in many parts of the country at the time of their great maritime discoveries. Forts and castles were built and occupied at different times by merchants from Portugal, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Germany and Great Britain. They served as a base for European chartered companies that traded in gold. They subsequently played an important role in the development of the slave trade, and therefore in the history of the Americas, then, in the 19th century, in the disappearance of this trade.
