Create an itinerary including Fort San Domingo
Experience a throwback to the British Colonial era in Taiwan by visiting Fort San Domingo. The Spaniards originally built the wooden fort, which the Dutch reinforced with stone when they took over it. The British were its final owners, and they turned it into a consulate. The fortress resides on a hill and serves as a museum. Take in the view of the surrounding hills and the city, learn about the history of the building from the exhibits, and walk its grounds.

  • A good place learning about history, trade and European colonization.It's also a good spot for taking pictures. A good side trip in Tamsui. Who knew that the Spaniards had a fort nearer to mainland...

  • Fort Santo Domingo has had many occupants, it was once a British consulate. Danshui was once an important port, so this was a significant building.

  • Beautiful place even in the rain, suggest not to follow Google maps suggest to park in the hills park off the main road. Great little Cafe right across the street. Also check out the church, Oxford College and the little white house while there all walking distance.
  • It's a very good place to know about the history about the foreigners (Spanish, British, French, Japan, South Korea, etc) living in Taiwan. There is no entry fee for the residents of the New Taipei City district, where as for others it's a nominal fee (and discount for students). Overall it was a very informative experience.
