Experience a throwback to the British Colonial era in Taiwan by visiting Fort San Domingo. The Spaniards originally built the wooden fort, which the Dutch reinforced with stone when they took over it. The British were its final owners, and they turned it into a consulate. The fortress resides on a hill and serves as a museum. Take in the view of the surrounding hills and the city, learn about the history of the building from the exhibits, and walk its grounds.

  • 以前一直以為淡水紅毛城是荷蘭人建造的,參觀後才知原來淡水紅毛城是,1629年西班牙人侵略淡水,為鞏固其在北臺灣的殖民事業,遂建「聖多明哥城」為基地;1642年,荷蘭人驅逐了西班牙人,在舊址重建該城,當時稱荷蘭人為「紅毛」,因此「紅毛城」之名也沿用至今。除了建築有特色,還可遠眺淡水河。 
  • 這段時間剛好紅毛城旅遊中心推廣健走路線的活動,從紅毛城,到小白宮、多田榮吉故居、海關碼頭,最後到稍遠的滬尾砲台,繞一圈的活動的集章活動,讓我和六歲的女兒走得很開心也稍有挑戰性,女兒也信心滿滿的完成,路不難走,動線也頗為順暢,還可以認識人文歷史,最後還換到健身的小禮物,是大人小孩都適合的親子活動。 
  • Hear and see. Buy tickets Tickets available for entry into the small bag archery. Freshwater red buildings. It remains in the memory.

  • The old building is quite interesting because of its long and complicated history as well as beautiful faces. Old red bricks and well-managed garden look good. In addition, the sunset you can watch around this place is strongly recommended.
  • 有歷史價值,新北市民憑身份證免費。 Castle with history that it said history since quite long time ago. If you are foreigner you should like this place and you will learn history about Taiwan and enjoy the beautiful view from this castle.
  • The location has spectacular landscape views. The fort is crowded during holiday or weekend. This place is just good for the people who want to enjoy the fresh air and scenery since it is not much to be seen inside the building.
  • Not too many things to see in Tamsui anyway. Good sunset view.
  • Old historic fort, makes for a nice day trip from Taipei, only 45 mins via MRT, nice scenery from atop of the hill
