Moyang Fortress

Fortress in Gochang

An impressive structure built in 1453, Moyang Fortress has a 1.6km-long wall surrounding a complex of reconstructed buildings, worth touring if you have a couple of hours to spare. Local legend says if a woman walks three times around the wall with a stone on her head during a leap year, she will never become ill and will enter paradise.

To get here, go behind the intercity bus terminal and head left along the stream; the fortress is a 20-minute walk down the road.
