Nice old buildingHistorical buildings. Mainly written in chinese. For those that can’t read probably not worth the visit. Will be better if they have guided tour. There are 2 nice little ponds around. Souvenir shop sell the beer that has koxinga. Taste pretty normal. Nothing much else in the area.
Former fort ProvintiaThe tower was built in 19th century on the place of former Dutch fort Provintia, which was destroyed by the earthquake. Nice structure but we did not enter as we were too late.

Interesting Features: Mixed HistoryOne of 2 forts built by the Dutch in the 1600’s but little evidence of the fort remains. Inside there is an exhibit and picture honouring a hero of Taiwan (Koxinga). In another building there is a display on examination material from the Confucian era (inChinese only unfortunately). The grounds are well kept with nicely clipped shrubs and the is also a koi pond, with bridge.
Better than usual......attraction in Tainan. Seemingly maintained well with ongoing archeological work going on. Historical displays with enough information in English to keep one interested. Kind of fascinating is the Dutch aspect to the tower’s history. Oh yea, best of all was the spotless restrooms.
COLORFUL PAVILIONChihkan Tower or Fort Provintia is the oldest building and most famous landmarks along with Anping Fort / Fort Zeelandia. Built during the Dutch colonial period in 1624 it is located on the Minzu road in downtown Tainan city. In this former Fort Provintia location stand two colorful temples that were built from the 19th century. The temple and pavilion on the second floor are not too special. Historical things and relics can find in second floors. The entrance ticket of NT50 is too expensive in my opinion with a place and building that is not too large which only take 10 minutes to explore. The location can be reached by Bus No. 5, or walking about 2 km from Tainan Station.
