Fort San Domingo - Review
One of the few establishments symbolizing foreign influence in the city, the Fuerte Santo Domingo is an important tourist location in Taipei. Built in 1629 by the Spanish in the form of a wooden fort, this small fort has seen its fair share of disturbance and turmoil.
The fort had been captured by the Dutch in 1642 after which in 1683, the Chinese government took control. The fort has since been demolished and reconstructed in the form of the original and is today a popular tourist site.

Fort San Domingo, Taipei Reviews
Great to come to visit historical landmark of New Taipei city. Entrance fee is 80 NT. For New Taipei Citizen is free. You will get to know about the earliest Taiwan in Spanish colonial period as well as Japanese colonial period. This is newly renovated structured building. THere is also old embassy office of English embassy as well.
Beautiful place for light history and great views. In my opinion this could be a day trip. Fort San Domingo, tam sui old street, the food street, market and promenade by the seashore. This place has it all for a great day trip.
Unfriendly security guard who was mean to cyclist. No parking space to bicycle, security guard would chase you away even when you ask nicely where the parking space for bicycle. The security guard acted as if he works for FBI. Really annoying. This is only a historical site, not a government office. Please realize any tourist who ride a bicycle comes a long way from other places just to visit and they deserve some respect. Thumb down for the service. Disappointing!
After a pleasant stroll along the river front we walked up to the fort. Around 100 steps to negotiate, but a cooling breeze made it very pleasant. Smaller than I had imagined, more of an old house than fort, but you can enjoy pleasant views over the estuary. The old British Consular house is still partly furnished, and again pleasantly appealling. Well worth the walk.
Interesting fort in beautiful location. Well worth a visit while in Tamsui
