New Taipei City ─ Fort Huwei Tamsui
Fort Huwei Tamsui-
Located on Zhongzheng Rd in Danshui District, New Taipei City (Taipei County). Fort Huwei was built and reconstructed in 1886 by the first Taiwan Governor, Chuan-Ming Liu. You may still see four words saying “Key to the North” on the door plaque of the fort, representing the importance of the fort guarding northern Taiwan. Fort Huwei is now considered as a Tier-Second historical site of Taiwan.There are two outbound layers of Tamsui Fort Huwei, the inner layer was the former dormitories for soldiers, storeroom for weapons and food, office for the governor, etc. The open exhibition areas now display pictures of old Tamsui and historical information relating to the fort. The outer layer is stationed by numerous forts, from the outer layer, visitors may enjoy beautiful views of Tamsui River. Besides, another worth visit attraction is the nearby Tamsui Martyr’s Shrine that offers one of the eight fantastic views of Tamsui with various pine tree troops.
