Jukjusanseong Fortress [죽주산성/竹州山城] — also known as Jukju-Sanseong or ‘Maeseong Fortress’ — are the remains of the fortress that was built during The Three Kingdoms Period. It is located on a 250 meters high peak that is adjacent to Bibongsan Mountain, in the village of Maesan [Maesan-ri/매산리] in Anseong’s Juksan Township [Juksan-myeon/죽산면].

According to the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty, it was built in 1605, right after the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592, with architectural references made to Japanese castles.

The fortress was designated Gyeonggi-do Monument No. 69 (기념물 제69호) on July 10 1973.
