Pretty forgetable

Just some cannons surrounding an old fort. When I was there they fired one ofbthe cannons which was pretty cool but this place is not worth getting of the track for.

I kind of went on a bit of a wander throughout the city and ended up here. It's pretty out of the way from everything and not necessarily worth the trip however if you are interested in old forts it's kind of interesting.

The outside gate in the picture above is probably the most interesting part of the castle. The show of the guards shooting the canon is kind of hoaky. Definitely not a must see attraction.

I love Tainan, spacious and many buildings with historical value still stand within the city. It's a place with culture and full of nice people. Eternal Castle has a river surround it, as it was a bastion created in the past for military purpose, you can still see a few large cannons inside. The open square in the middle was... More

I came here with my friends, hoping that we able to learn Taiwan history and beautiful surroundings. But, we were disappointed. Basically, it's just a training camp. That's it. There's no explanation or whatever.

Put simply, there's nothing golden and it's an old military installation, not a castle. Still, it's a well preserved landmark that provides a glimpse into the past and is pleasant to stroll around--especially if you enjoy military history. There are several preserved cannons and it was interesting to see the design of the coastal defense batteries. Overall, nothing extraordinary and... More

It is quite interesting if you are into military defense strategy. They managed to conserved some cannons from that time. It is small like everything in Anping, but meaningful.

Just a square field with some cannons on top of the little platforms. The place is quiet. At the entrance is a small moat with some boat installations if you like to paddle around. Not much to see. Opposite is a fish theme restaurant 府城馆 you should try

A fairly nondescript fort and perhaps the least interesting of the seven first-class historic sites in Tainan. Designed by Frenchman, the first modern-era fort in Taiwan only saw two minor incidences in its time and has a fairly limited history. The bricks used to build it were taking from Fort Zeelandia (which is why that fort is a "reconstruction"...as is... More

It's on the tour bus route... It was alright. 50 NT to get in and look around. It's pretty inside but there really isn't much to look at. We saw a group of men dressed in period clothing doing a cannon firing. Wasn't bad
