I visited the fort on my last day in Axim. Upon entering, I couldn't find any tour guide at the entrance so I entered and started touring myself. Which is bad. The place is being inhabited by a family. The sanctity of the place should...More

Needed to be remodeled and fenced to attract the necessary tourist visits and attention. The location close to the Sea is fantastic. I did not get the history behind the building whilst there apart form the terse inscription o the frontage.

The Fort has been recently renovated in 2012. It has a museum with good information and exhibits. I took the guided tour which was very informative and cost about 10USD. It is easily accessible in the fishing village of Axim and has beautiful views out...More

Guide was pretty casual and asking for financial support. The tour could be so much more and presented more enthusiastically. The displays were interesting. Learning trip to Elmina (St. George's) might help as their guides are much better.

Tour guide seemed in a hurry or not interested probably because it was just me and my husband. He seemed quite knowledgeable though

We had to search around and wait for someone to open the fort but then our guide was great. Similar to the Cape coast castles. If you're in axim, you must see this castle

The Fort which is supposed to be the biggest fort in Ghana seems to be the most abandoned fort in Ghana. The guide to the place wasn't nice as he sounded rude on reception. There was no receipt for monies paid and this will obviously...More

Smaller than the castles at Cape Coast and Elmina, but with a similar tragic story to tell. The fort suffers from being allowed to decay and could do with more TLC. Worth a short visit if in the area, but also walk through the village....More

We drove on a rainy day down a horrific muddy road to get here but were rewarded with some of the most spectacular views I've ever seen. The fort is located on the coast line with islands, breakers, many old wooden boats, and a palm...More
