Authentic populations in Ghana
Culture is also widely covered: the slave coast with its forts where the Netherlands also has a large part of its history, Kumasi with its Ashanti art, the authentic populations in the north, such as the Lobi,the Gurunsi and the Talensi. At the Gurunsi everything is tightly organized, women and men have their own tasks and responsibilities. On your way to Kumasi, pass Larabanga, with an impressive 14th-century mosque. And if you want to delve further into the history of this beautiful country, a visit to the Castle of Cape Coast should not be missed. This castle, built by the Swedes in 1653, now houses an informative museum about slavery.
