Cape Coast, and the history attached to it.Cape Coast Castle is a fortification in Ghana built by Swedish traders. The first timber construction on the site was erected in 1653 for the Swedish Africa Company and named Carolusborg after King Charles X of Sweden. It was later rebuilt in stone.In April 1663 the whole Swedish Gold Coast was seized by the Danes, and integrated in the Danish Gold Coast. In 1664 the Castle was conquered by the English and was extensively rebuilt by the Committee of Merchants (whose Governors administered the entire British colony) in the late 18th century. In 1844, it became the seat of the colonial Government of the British Gold Coast.The Cape Coast Castle, and other forts and castles in Ghana, are included on the United Nations World Heritage List. This historic site was visited by the US President Barack Obama and family on July 2009.
A spot for relaxing and tranquillityOn my first trip to Ghana, we all went to Cape Coast for a day, it was a nice excursion, and we finished it at the cosiest restaurant i ewer visited.This fisherman’s boat, was sitting on the beach right outside our table where we had our meal 10 m from us, it´s the Atlantic ocean that you see.
This is our favourite restaurant in Cape CoastWhen ewer we have some time over, this is where we go...
It´s a beautiful place...It is very easy to lose time al together when you sit her, and just watch the waves from the Atlantic role in to the beach.
