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.

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.
