Fort Provintia or Providentia was a Dutch outpost on Formosa at a site now located in West Central District, Tainan, Taiwan. It was built in 1653 during the Dutch colonization of Taiwan. The Dutch, intending to strengthen their standing, sited the fort at Sakam, about 2 miles due east from modern-day Anping. During the Siege of Fort Zeelandia, the fort was surrendered to Koxinga, but was later destroyed by an earthquake in the 19th century.
