Christiansborg Castle

Accra, Ghana

It is unique among the castles and forts in Ghana as it served as Government House during various periods in the 19th centuries and continues to play that role today. Also known as Osu Castle located in Osu, Accra, Ghana on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean's Gulf of Guinea. 

The present castle is made up of various extensions to the original and is thus in an unorthodox shape. It has many facilities for the use of employees, including a clinic, cafe, shopping centre, and a post office. It also still accommodates a permanent garrison. The extensive gardens feature a wide variety of plants, both local and imported, and employ 30 people. They are used for the president's outdoor receptions and parties.
