    Heritage
    [Ghana] became a major economic hub with the emergence of the slave trade, and several slave castles erected by the Europeans in 15th century remain standing.
    Built by the Portuguese in 1482, Elmina Castle is the oldest remaining slave castle in Africa. It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it has become a pilgrimage site, drawing thousands of visitors from around the world -- in particular African-Americans and Caribbean people seeking to connect with their heritage.
    The town of Elmina surrounding the castle is a vibrant, robust fishing community with an incredible amount of energy and color.
