Zeelandia Fortress


Acquired: 21 March, 2008
Acquired from: The Netherlands

In 1624 the Dutch built their base Zeelandia Fortress in the Dutch occupied area of Dutch Tainan. Because this image is drawn on a grid it is believed to be highly accurate. The stairs attached to the outside of the building were used as reference during reconstruction.
