The location serves as a natural barrier to protect the bay. The top of the island was dug out and concrete was poured to make it a fortress.
The fort houses bedrooms, kitchens, gun emplacements, firing ports, and everything else needed for a small military post.
This is a fort where soldiers made their home and is said some lost their lives to Communist infiltrators.
The fort was off-limits to civilians until it was opened to the public in 1992.
One of Nangan’s many historic treasures, this is a definite stop for anyone visiting Matsu.
