Asante is a complex of historical buildings in Ghana located in the south in Ashanti region, approximately 40km from Kumasi
town. It presents remnants of Asante civilisation. Ashanti, or Asante, were the main ethnic group in Ghana. This civilisation grew rich mainly thanks to gold mining on their territory, especially in 18th century. The buildings built here are made of clay, wood, mud and straw, despite of that they are still quite undamaged. From 1980 Asante is listed in UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List.
