Fort San Domingo

It was one of the oldest buildings in Taiwan

One of the most interesting sites at Tamsui is Fort San Domingo. In Chinese it's known as the Red-Body-Hair Fortress. The fort was first built by the Spanish in 1629 and later occupied by the Dutch. In 1867 it became the British Consulate. Today's it's an attractive museum. Theresa and I took an easy walk from the Tamsui MRT station to get here.
