An old gate. The only interesting part is a tree growing out of a part of a wall with the roots on the outside of the wall. Otherwise there really is nothing worth visiting this site for.

Maybe this is only a weekday activity, but on the Saturday I visited it was closed and thus all I saw was a wall with a nice door. If you can go inside on other days, it would have been nice to know. Nothing in...More

At present this place is partially covered in scaffolding and sheeting, so it takes away from the scene and to be fair it's not all that interesting anyway, if you were going to miss one on your walking trip of the city then this would...More

It is good for a few photos but it probably won't keep you interested for more than 20 minutes. Not a good place for disabled people or anyone with a stroller.

A french-inspired fort gate that would have been something more inspiring if it was original (not reconstructed) and in its original position (it was relocated from another part of town).

Landmarks of Tainan. Worth a visit and pictures. The Firing ceremony in the afternoon is interesting. Outside the walls is one of the most famous special restaurants in Tainan.(Wu-Jiao Chuan Ban,means 5 penny restaurant.)
