Kente weaving in Ghana

Dutch Cemetery In Elmina

The old Dutch Cemetery in Elmina town dates back to 1806.  It was constructed on the order of Governor of the Dutch Gold Coast. Up until that date, the Dutch had buried their dead inside or just outside Elmina Castle, but by the beginning of the 19th century, little space was left there, so it was decided to construct a new cemetery in what was known as "the Garden" of Elmina. Ironically, Governor Hoogenboom was also one of the first people to be interred in the cemetery, after he died at the hands of the locals with whom he had a rift.

The Elmina Castle

Built by the Portuguese in 1482 as São Jorge da Mina (St. George of the Mine) because of its strategic location for trade. It is a well preserved castle, the oldest European built structure in black Africa  with an incredible history and famous for its pivotal role in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. Take an optional walk through the Elmina township and market to view some homes built in colonial style and also to experience the lifestyle of the Fantis.
