19th-century map of Gold Coast and the Asante kingdom

During the colonial period in Ghana, at the time known as Gold Coast, European-style coastal forts and castles were built, mostly by Portuguese, Dutch and British. A number of these fortifications and outposts were designated World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Kumasi Fort in the Ashanti Region was originally built by an Asante king in imitation of these colonial forts.[1]
