Assin Manso is a town in the Central Region of Ghana, located along the Cape Coast – Kumasi highway in the Central region. Assin Manso Ancestral Slave River Park was one of the largest slave markets for gathering people to sell into slavery during the infamous trans-Atlantic slave trade.

It was the final link in the slavery route from northern Ghana and was known to have been the largest slave market for merchants supplying slaves on the forts and castles on the coast.
