The first Europeans to arrive at the coast were the Portuguese in 1471.
They encountered a variety of African kingdoms, some of which controlled substantial deposits of gold in the soil. In 1482, the Portuguese built the Castle of Elmina, the first European settlement on the Gold Coast.

Our style did inspire many other website. Many of our pictures too, (some without permission used). Used by websites, such as Ghanaweb, Ghananation, Modernghana and Peacefm. Some websites used even full parts of our website (as "I-frame").
