We also made it to the Slave Castles. I am glad that I got the opportunity to see them but never again will I ever want to go back. When I went to the temple the other day we talked to the temple president and he told us what a dark and evil feeling you get there. He told us that the devil is there and it truly was. I have never felt the devil so strongly then I did at the slave castles. I can't imagine all that they went through. These inocent people did no wrong but went through so much pain and suffering. A little bit of history behind the castle. They were around for 570 years. They held up to 150 females and 150 males at a time. Most of the men became soldiers before they were sold. The castles started out as a trading company for goods and then it went to slaves. I hope and pray that this world will never get so dark and dreary as they did during the time of slavery!
