  • Korea's fortresses reflect the past and Koreans' respect for the environment

    2013/04/14, Source,
    Korea is a nation of fortresses, evidenced by the fact that fortresses account for the largest number of historic sites designated by the Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea. While castles, town walls, and other defensive fortifications can be found around the world, topography and necessity have inspired Koreans to develop a unique fortress tradition distinct from not only the West's, but also Korea's Asian neighbors'. Korean fortresses are not merely military structures-they also reflect Korea's traditional architectural aesthetic, its engineering prowess, and, above else, the Korean reverence for nature.
