  • 成人入園費50元,護城河為海水,可看到虱目魚等海水魚,內部城牆走一圈約15分鐘(不含拍照),行程不緊湊可走走看看。  more »
  • 雖然億載金城園區大小,可能算是臺南其他古蹟中最小的,不過護城河看起來讓它特別許多。這裡很快就逛完,但還是推薦來拍照走走。  more »
  • Far removed from the rest of the core attractions of Anping (about 3 km.), the Fort is known by different names (Anping Big Cannon Fort, Erkunshen Cannon Fort, Yi Tzai Golden Castle...) It was built during the last third of the 19th century. Much of this fortress was destroyed and then restored and converted into a historical monument. In the visit, can walk by the fortifications, contemplate the views from it high. It also has a pond surrounding the Fort, and by which you can take a walk in the paddleboats that are for rent at the entrance. Recommendation: the fortress is OK, but only if you have enough time. If we are a bit righteous, I I would go spend the time they deserve to the central places of Anping (Mazu Temple, Fort Zeelandia, Anping Tree House). How to arrive-two basic options: 1) the most comfortable, bus numbers 15, 17 and 19. Also the tourist bus 88, to the stop of the Eternal Golden Castle. (2) the more long- but helpful-, walking from any of the attractions of Anping (Fort Zeelandia, etc.), and passing by the bridge of Anyi and the port-van in comment aside. Would take about 30-45 minutes, but deserve the penalty. If anything, return can be done also by bus, the stop is right in front of the entrance of the fortress, on the other side of the street. ENTRANCE: 50 NTD (1,70 €)
