Images and guide to Elmina
's Central Coast. Elmina
is one of the most fascinating places I've visited in Africa. The St George's Castle (Elmina Castle) played a major role in the trans-Atlantic slave trade
and is the main attraction in town. But I found the fishing port to be equally fascinating with its lively markets, Asafo
buildings, and fantastic "pirogues" sailing in and out of the lagoon.
Unfortunately it is not always easy to take close up photos of people in Ghana, so many of these shots are "panoramas". But this is why I'd highly recommend you go, the buzz, the noise, the color and the activity is just amazing in this town, I loved it.
