Ghana's Elmina Castle, now designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Monument, was built in 1482 by Portugese slave traders. It became the first slave trading port and was later used by Dutch and British traders. The castle's "Door of No Return" marked the entryway that enslaved West Africans were forced through to the Americas. It is noted that approximately 30,000 slaves passed through Elmina Castle.
