Located some 7 km. south of Makassar at the mouth of the Jeneberang river are the ruins of Fort Somba Opu, once the stronghold of the kingdom of Gowa. Next to the ruins is a park where various style houses of all South Sulawesi’s ethnic groups are displayed. The annual South Sulawesi Cultural Festival usually held in October is staged at this site.
