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...  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • I am so in love with this place! Really such a great architecture that they have! A cheap entrance and worth your money & time.
  • Well kept / well maintained. The statues gave me a bit of a scare. The school next door was my biggest draw. Makes me want to go back and attend college again.
