This was where many slaves were held in slave houses before being sold and shipped off. The pinkish house is the main sight, a famous slave house in which you can visit the various holding rooms to get an idea of the hardship....and the famous symbol of slavery, the dual staircase with the "Door of no return" in between, through which sold slaves were taken to the ships that took them to the Americas.
