Osu Castle: Also known as Fort Christiansborg, Osu Castle is located on the coast of the Gulf of Guinea. Though originally built in the 1600’s the castle has been rebuilt many times over the years. The castle has played an important role in Ghana’s history, as the seat of government for the majority of the time since Ghana’s independence. The past Ghanaian president, John Atta Mills is buried there, in a bird sanctuary that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The castle boasts beautiful and extensive gardens that host a wide variety of plants. Though the castle is not open to tourists currently, and photography is restricted, it remains a beautiful feature of the coastline and a popular attraction to view from afar.
