Does the Tay Son Dynasty have a citadel?

Where do the Tay Son operate from?

Is it the Son Tay Citadel?  It's in the north near Ha Noi.

1883? So this would be long after the tyson were wiped out. I wonder what happened to these buildings? Especially during french occupation and the US bombings.

The Tay Son were originally southern peasants that revolted and took over the castles and citadels. 3 brothers each took realm of the three parts of vietnam. Hoang De citadel/Quy Nhon in south central, Phu Xuan citadel/Hue in central, and this one in hanoi in the north. They then built upon on it more I'd imagine, especially in the northern and southern citadels. Some of the buildings are european looking, I think the french/nguyeners destroyed some parts and rebuilt it.
