Accra was founded by the Ga people (Ga-Adangbe, an ethnic group from the Greater Accra Plains) in the late 1400s, later it became a center for trade with the Portuguese, who built a fort in the town.

In the 17th century it was the site of three European trading fortresses, which were all in British hands by 1871. Accra became the capital of the British colony of the Gold Coast in 1876 and was made capital of independent Ghana in 1957.
