Built by the Portuguese in 1515 near the town of Axim, this fortified trading post was captured by the Dutch in 1642, and then turned over to Britain in 1872. Fort Saint Anthony and other forts and castles along the Gold Coast protected important ports of the European-African Gold and Ivory trade and became later centres of the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade.

Fort Saint Anthony, together with 17 other fortified trading-posts in Ghana are inscribed as “Forts and Castles, Volta, Greater Accra, Central and Western Regions” in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The Zamani Project spatially documented Fort Saint Anthony in 2013.
