Summary[edit]

Description
English: The "Door of no return" through which the slaves left the castle when they were shipped away. It was not possible for any of them to ever return to their homeland. In July 2009, at his first official visit to sub-Saharan Africa President Obama visited the castle and symbolically passed through this door and then back to the caste. Then the door was renamed to "Door of return". (I believe it was actually renamed earlier, prior to the president's visit. They did unveil a plaque for the president during his visit, but the door was already the "Door of Return")
