    Ocheon Chungcheong Suyeongseong (fortress)

    Ocheon Port was a center of trade with the Tang Dynasty during the United Silla period. As Japanese pirates often appeared around the port area during the Goryeo Dynasty, Ocheonseong (fortress) was built as a lookout to the sea. During the Joseon Dynasty, the military base of Chungcheong Sugun Jeoldosa (naval commander-in- chief) was constructed in Ocheon. Presently, Manghwamun (the north gate), Jinhyulcheong where the poor were well cared for, a military camp for officers, and a fortress still remain.
