Fancheng is a district of the city of Xiangyang, Hubei, People's Republic of China.


"Fang-tching"" in Du Halde's 1736 Description of China, based on reports from the Jesuit China missions but reversing the positions of Xiangyang and Fancheng.

Fancheng, or Fan City, was an ancient city in Hubei, situated on the northern side of the Han River, opposite Xiangyang on the southern side of the river. Throughout history, the city has served both military and economic purposes and was famous for numerous battles including the Battle of Fancheng during the Three Kingdoms period and the Siege of Xiangyang during the Mongol invasions.

In 1949, Fancheng was merged with Xiangyang to form Xiangfan, a prefecture-level city. Fancheng is now a district of that city, encompassing 482.2 km2 (186 sq mi) and having a population of 821,531, according to a 2010 census.
