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
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.
Both the fort and the Consul's residence are beautifully maintained and the information boards have lots of photos and information in English. The views over the river and estuary are excellent. Well worth a few hours to visit.
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.
