One of the darker sides of the colonial period in Ghana can be seen in Axim: the slave’s fort. St. Antonio. From there thousands of people were shipped across the Atlantic to slavery worldwide. Thus, for many people this place is the fateful origin to their roots. The fort is in very good condition and gives a close look into the past. An exciting guided tour really is worth knowing about their builders and the perverse, then commonplace and generally tolerated trafficking in human beings. Unbelievable, but true!
