Day 2: The Old Accra Tour - Historical & Heritage Sites including UNESCO protected sites

Stop At: James Town Lighthouse, Cleland Road, Accra Ghana
One of the most historic places to be in Accra is James Town.
A visit to James Town unveils the rich history of the indigenous of Accra and the tight knit spirit with which families and neighbors coexisted.
The main occupation here is fishing and due to the proximity to the sea, James town played a key role in the slave trade which demanded construction of James Town Lighthouse to serve us a navigation aid for incoming slave ships.
The 28-metre (92 ft) structure was originally built in the 1930s, replacing an earlier lighthouse that had been built in 1871. It consists of a stone tower with lantern and gallery, attached to a keeper's house.. It’s not a tourist attraction in the usual sense – no gift shops or ticket offices here. There’s a good panoramic view from the top of the spiral staircase of the light house.

Duration: 3 hours
