The castle was used to hold slaves under degrading and inhumane conditions before they were loaded onto ships and sold in the Americas, especially the Caribbean.


This “gate of no return” was the last stop before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

In 2009, Former US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama also visited the castle as part of their activities while on an official visit to Ghana.
