Hulishan Fortress Cannons – Xiamen

Hulishan Fortress is on the southern shore of Xiamen Island, and it was built in 1894.  It contains one of the largest cannon’s I’ve seen, weighing in at about 50 tonne.

The picture shows 5 remaining cannon’s from 1841, used to protect against invasions from the British.
