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.

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.
It's so chill when you visit there. The architecture is very beautiful. Staffs are kind and helpful. Free for Taiwanese but 80NTD for foreigner.
It's the old Spanish fort that has since then changed hand many times. Watch your head with the old door ways, and your will learn a lot about Taiwan's role in Asia's maritime silk road. The classy buildings and their narrow hallways outside makes it a must for girls who adores pretty selfies. Unfortunately you can't go up to the balcony for a photo, and a small admission fee is required.
Nice visit. Great views form the fort of the surrounding area. Lots of photo ops. Good history lesson.
Definitely worth visiting. Cheap entrance and easy to get to. Some nice history, interesting buildings, and a good view.
