Outside the castle, a wonderful fishing village with lots of large colorful fishing boats – every day these canoes are guided by skilled fishermen across strong ocean waves and currents, “fighting” to earn a living. The alleys in the old town have a lively atmosphere, going back to a time when Elmina was a wild colonial town.
