Hillside fort with nicely preserved Victorian residence.After returning to the Shillin Station from visiting the Palace Museum, we took the MRT to its northern terminus. In front of the large brick Tamsui Station, we boarded the #26 bus for 2 km northwest to the Fort San Domingo stop. First we strolled the waterfront to the Tamsui Museum Custom's Wharf with displays on the 19th C port. The British Consulate boat shelter ruins were just across the fort entrance where, after paying US$ 2.25 each, we took the incline. Most interesting was the preserved Victorian residence complete with period furnishings. We also had free access to the Aletheia University next door with its beautiful concert hall and the 1882 Oxford University building now housing its archives. Now take the bus #26 to the Tamsui District's tight covered market streets..
The neighborhood with good maintenanceIf you can spend one day in Tamsui district and are a historical spot lover, don’t forget to visit this place. It is not very big so it’s very easy to walk the whole area, and there are many introductions to provide you the history, culture background of this, very helpful information to help you understand everything around you. Recommend take 60mins for this spot.
Interesting historyWe learnt a lot about the colonial history of Taiwan through visiting the fort, which I found interesting because I always find it good to know about the place I’m visiting. The entrance is opposite the bay then you have to walk up fifty or so steps to get to the fort which is a red painted building. Why is it red ? Visit and read the history. Some nice views of the bay and then later we took a ferry to the fishing village and had a nice view of the fort from the ferry Worth a visit if you’re interested in historical buildings.
Easy to locateIf you are a person who love historical building and history than is recommended. Location at Tamsui station, would recommend you to walk as is roughly about 15 minutes to reach destination. Along the way there are shop houses the whole stretch of road. Once there you need pay $80 for entrance.
HistoryWent back in time. Didn’t know much about taiwan history this far back. This spanish fort was built in 1628!
