Co Loa Citadel
By Hanoi Local Guide


Built near Phong Khe and located 20km from Hanoi, this ancient citadel was comissioned by King An Duong Vuong, famous for a magic crossbow and the fact that he decapitated his daughter. Once the capital of the Au Lac state, all that remain are two outer walls and the interior citadel building. The fortress is a spiral shaped compound of the ancient capital and the site has been the source of various relics from the Bronze Age.
