Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good place to walk around and see Ghana history in its flesh. The area that this is situated in is quite busy but my friend and I walked around and tried to get a glimpse of the history in Accra. There is no wonderful spectacular thing and it is free to check out.

This was the site of a revolution on the 28th of February! There is some much history in Ghana. Please visit this location as well. You get to go to the top and see the view of Accra.

While I wouldn't label this as a MUST-SEE, it was still rather pleasant. Driving around the gate will get you enough for a quick history lesson and photo, but if you're so inclined as to walk up to it then be sure to climb the stairs to the top. While the view is nothing breathtaking, it is still rather enjoyable.

Reminded me a lot of the Paris landmark except not as large since you can’t drive through it and there’s lots of trash in the streets and vendors hawking souvenirs. Even the view from the top isn’t that spectacular since Ghana doesn’t really have a skyline or it’s not in plain view. Nevertheless, it’s a must do to hear about the history of Ghana and the significance of both the arch and the Black Star.

I always like to get up close and personal to monuments so I planned a jog right up to the arch… I was able to get some cool shots and of course see the rest of the historic area down by the water while I was at it!

The city view from the top of the gate and the story that comes with it, that explains the black star and the meaning behind the colors or the Ghana flag 🇬🇭.

Not so much to see, you can make some pictures and go to another place from here. We did a car trip and took this place on the way to osu castle.
