Shiqiuling Fort is built in 1884, this gun emplacement was constructed to enhance coast defense when the French attacked Taiwan for the Vietnam problem. Shiqiuling Fort is the highest gun emplacement among all the gun emplacements in Keelung. It is an essential place for the defense of the harbor. The gun emplacement was made with solid mountain rocks and the structure was kept well. It is important because it is the only remaining small gun emplacement built in late Ching Dynasty. Thanks to its ideal location, the gun emplacement offers a great view over the entire harbor of Keelung.
