Actually you won't find the so-named fort built by the Spanish (1629) and destroyed by them after being expelled by the Dutch. The one still standing today is Fort Anthonio, built by the Dutch in 1644 in the same place. It's one of the oldest, if not the oldest, buildings in Taipei.
The legend says there is still a lot of gold hidden in the tunnels used by the Dutch to escape from Koxinga.
Nearby you'll find the ancient British consulate converted into the Museum Fort San Domingo.
