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.

Chihkan Tower (Fort Provintia) Reviews
台南に来たから一応行っとくか くらいの気持ちで入ってみると、予想より良かったです。 外観も内装も素敵。二階に上がると涼しくて気持ちいい。言葉にしにくいけれど、行って良かった。鄭成功の事、帰ってから調べました。 でかい筋肉質なリスがすばしっこく走るのを見かけました。 more »It was better than expected when entering with the feeling of going once because it came to Tainan. The exterior and interior decoration are wonderful. It's cool and pleasant when you go upstairs. It's hard to put into words, but I'm glad I went. I checked on the success of the team after I got home. I saw a big muscular squirrel run quickly.
バス停が前です。塀も赤、２階が鮮やかな青に模様で目立ちます。物凄い人でした。ここから昔夕日を見たんだなあと思うめぐらしました。 more »The bus stop is in front of us. The wall is also red, and the second floor stands out with a vivid blue pattern. He was a terrible person. I thought that I had seen the sunset from here in the old days.
Beautiful historic landmark with many photo opportunities and interesting history. Definitely a must go for tourists, but also for locals still very interesting. Guided tours or audioguide per app are recommended, in order to better organize the events historically. Most of the descriptions are in Mandarin.
Wonderful historical site to visit. Lots of popular destinations in this area. Some great food around as well. Be careful when bringing little kids as there are steps and heights.
