The exact year of this site’s construction is not yet known, but experts say that it was not built during the Joseon Dynasty, and there is a possibility that the fortress was originally built during the Tamnaguk before being fixed and used as a defense facility against foreign attacks during the Goryeo Dynasty. Today, about 150m of the Namsugak Pavilion, which is a part of the fortress, has been restored. The fortress boasts a long history and has constantly protected the center district of Jejudo Island, but is tragically in a very poor condition. This is because it was heavily damaged between 1925 and 1928 during the Japanese Imperialism, when the rocks of the fortress were reclaimed to fill up the coastal water of Geonip-dong Port. Around the reliable fortress, many citrus and Fragrant Citruses are planted. So in fall, when they ripened, it is said that the fortress was covered with beautiful orange color. Watching the old fortress aging and crumbling is very devastating, but it is a place that reminds us of the wisdom of the ancestors that built its mighty wall to block foreign attacks.
