Recognized by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a World Heritage Site, the Elmina Castle (also known as Mina in present-day Elmina) is documented as the maiden entry point of trade along the Gulf of Guinea and also one of the most important stops on the transatlantic slave trade route. The Ghana Tourism Authority reports that the historic site attracts thousands of tourists each week who come seeking to understand how it felt to be enslaved inside its walls.
