Baozhen Fortification, located in Fangjiagou Village, Baozhensai Township, Guangan City, Sichuan Province, is a residential and military complex originally built in 1911. The only of its kind in Sichuan, the complex was built by an eminent family surnamed Duan to escape the war. Covering 15000-plus square meters on an area of 7.5 square kilometers, the fortification has eight courtyards and 108 gates serving multiple purposes of daily life, entertainment, warehousing and firefighting.
