Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia), Tainan
(3.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1653, Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia) represents a Dutch outpost that has been preserved since the days of colonization. This attraction was named by the Dutch after a nearby indigenous village, which is now called Tainan. Though this site was surrendered to the Koxinga and then demolished by an earthquake in the 1800s, it has since been rebuilt. This new structure served at the capital of the island and later opened to the public for tours. Take note of the site's architectural value as well as its library. Put Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia) into our Tainan trip itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Tainan.

  • We have Wi-Fi i Taiwan had registered in advance at the net. It was a spot up Wi-Fi in situ photos taken at tourist spots, where guests can relax.

  • Is a place of feeling not so spacious and less coherent. About 10 stone tablets carrying turtles (another creature is) near the entrance of the building. While the old red-brick building is in.

  • 在台南,赤嵌樓是最富盛名的古蹟,雖然古物已不復存在,但幾隻大龜馱著的大石碑仍具歷史意義。古井一口,已堵塞封閉,相傳是荷蘭人逃跑的地道,真實性如何,不得而知。走走看看,憑弔歷史的痕跡吧!
