A grat experience in four hands massages, a full hour with two nice girls, creams and oils for only 100,000 cedis.
A real relaxation, and after you can swim in the pool of the lodge.

Another former slave fort in Accra is James Fort in James Town; the oldest part of the city with nice old houses. This fort however, is still used as a prison and it is not possible to visit it. Just like a lot of other things in Accra, it is even forbidden to take pictures of the building. Again, I didn't really care...
When the British captured Gold Coast in 1665, they first built their base in Cape Coast. Cape Coast Castle was their centre of administration for a long time. When they moved further to the east, they built James Fort in 1673. First it was used as a trade centre for the region, and later it was turned into a slave fort, just like the nearby Ussher Fort.
When the base of British was moved to Accra in the 19th century, James Fort became the first centre of administration and it was no longer used to deport slaves. Later the fort was turned into a prison, and today it still has that function.
