It's a Dutch colonial fortress and still well maintain. A good example for good fortress architecture, they have a museum as well. I think, cleanliness could be more properly done

Such a wonderful place to visit and understand more about the history and Indonesia's heroes. Lovely museum upstairs to walk around in as well.

When I was there, they were celebrating a huge collection of traditional knives and swords. Got to meet the Minister(?) of Tourism for the province.

Well, there is not much to visit in Makassar so you'll probably visit this one. Not that much interesting and they'll ask for a "donation" before entering. If you're not sure you want to come in, pass your turn and save your money.

I suggest to visit because you will know all the information inside, ask local guide ( chargeable ) but worth. Never regrets about this historical place.
