    Fondest memory: Cape Coast is the capital of the Central Region in Ghana, and has a population of 100.000 people. The city is located 165 km west of Accra, which takes about 3-4 hours to drive. Cape Coast is most known for beeing the place where a large number of the slaves were held before they left Africa. The place was founded by the Fante tribe in the 10th century. From the 16th century it changed from beeing owned by colonialist from Netherlands, Sweden and finally Britain. The British had their operation in Cape Coast until Accra became their capital in 1877.
