Cap Corse or Cape Coast Castle, Ghana - the "Gate of No Return" sits on the Gold Coast of Ghana, Africa. Originally a 17th century Swedish trading post, it ultimately fell into the possession of the Dutch West Indian Company and was used in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The Cape Coast Castle, and other forts and castles in Ghana, are included on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage List.
