Introduce

The Fort was built in the 20th year of the reign of the Daoguang Emperor in the Qing Dynasty to defend against the British during the Opium War in 1840. It is comprised of the main body and a protective rock embankment that is long and narrow and extends south to north. The main body of the fort stands next to today’s Shuichi Park (水池公園) and is made from granite; the northern embankment is made from coral rock and cement, with firing holes and a gate to keep water out. The Fort is a city-listed historic site and is the best-preserved early Chinese style fort from the Qing Dynasty in Taiwan, different to modern Western forts such as Eternal Golden Castle(億載金城).This spot was originally an important part of the coastal defenses of Anping but lost its usefulness after the Taijing Inner Sea(台江內海) silted up. The once-majestic fort has seen everything change over time. It is good place to ponder on the past.

    安平のやや北にありました。普通に路沿いに大砲が置いてありました。 保存状態もまあまあいい感じでした。200年以上も前と書いてありましたが、ホントかな?

    我來到堡壘,發現它有一個外堡和內堡。內堡有彈藥和食物儲藏室,營房,辦公室,駐軍和教堂。在四個角落都是大砲。外堡也裝有大砲。在外堡內有住所,醫院和房屋。

    有點孤單的古蹟

    假設安平開臺天后宮在你的行程之列, 您無須特別安排也會經過此小砲台景點 (因為大多數人都會選擇在港邊走走). 但因為缺少與其他古蹟景點的互動, 所以僅只能是打完卡便馬上離開的景點.有點可惜.
