Built in 1685 by Brandenburgers. From 1687 to 1690, it was briefly under Dutch control. In 1698, it was returned to the Brandenburgers. Around 1709, it was abandoned. In 1712, it was in the hands of the Dutch. In 1712, it was handed over to the Brandenburgers. In 1718, it was sold to the Dutch.
In 1683, the Brandenburger Company established a lodge in Akwida, Ghana’s Western Region, east of Cape Three Points. Fort Dorothea was initially a modest triangular structure, according to Albert van Danzig. It had a lot of natural protection because it was on a promontory and the extremity of a peninsula between the Suni River and the sea.’
The Dutch took the lodge in 1690 and expanded it into a fort. Fort Dorothea was the new name. It is now a ruin that is being conserved.
Hike Fort Dorothea for a glimpse into the past. You can get excellent views of the surrounding area from the top of Dorothea’s rounded rocky slope. Note that the territory surrounding the fort’s ruins is considered hallowed ground because it serves as a burial ground for the Akwidaa royal dynasty. As a result, you must obtain authorization before visiting the site.
