HANDICRAFT VILLAGES: Co Loa citade, Snake village, Bat Trang seramic***
Co Loa: Dating from the 3rd century BC, Co Loa Citadel (Co loa Thanh) was the first fortified citadel in Vietnamese history and became the national capital during the reign of Ngo Quyen (AD 939-4-1). This old fortress attracts many tourists for its historical and cultural value. The site consists of two outer sets of ramparts and a citadel on the inside, of rectangular shape. Especially, the citadel is a spiral-shaped complex which will take you to the mysterious ancient Vietnam thousands of years ago. Archaeologists have estimated that over two million cubic meters of material were moved in order to construct the entire fortress. The site has been the source of various relics of the Dong Son culture of the Bronze Age. It would be interesting for tourist to find that this Citadel is attractive not only in its cultural and historical value, but also in the most famous legend of Viet Nam about Princess My Chau and An Duong Vuong, a King who loved his daughter with all his heart but, lacking vigilance, left Co Loa and lost both his family and his country.
