The Hobe Fort was the first line of defense in Northern Taiwan during the Qing Dynasty. Although the fort was never involved in any battle, there was a battle between China and France in 1884 before the fort was built. The outer walls of the fort used to be the dorm and storage area for the soldiers. Now it is a space that displays the historical archive of the fort’s history along with old photos of Tamsui. Nearby is one of the eight top spots of Tamsui, the Song Tao Martyrs Shrine. Do not miss it when you are here!
