A relatively modern fortThe Eternal Golden Castle is actually a small fort, around 1.7 kms from Anping Old Fort. It was built by Qing Official in 1876 to safeguard the coastline of Tainan. It took us 30 minutes to walk from Anping Old Fort. The huge flat area at the middle of the fort was the resting and training ground for the soldiers. The armory, replica of huge cannons pointing towards the coastline, and the moat can be seen there. Some sources stated that the fort was built with the bricks dismantled from Fort Zeelandia. We would recommend to visit the site together with Anping Old Fort.

An interesting stroll around an historic fortressThis fortification was built in 1874 to defend against Japanese invasions. Today, it offers an interesting stroll around the batteries and courtyard parade grounds, with lovely views from the walls to the river and adjacent park, which is typically full of locals going for a jog or taking an evening walk in the shade of the trees.

Nothing specialWon't recommend this, until you've already seen other places in Tainan. Just a small area surrounded with walls and several cannons inside.
Nothing specialActually not much things to see right there. But it’s good to bring kids to walk around to spend a day.
Historical landmarkAnother great historical landmark. Worth a visit. Nice to sit and relax when the weather's good. There are boats that you could ride as well.
