The history of the Spanish presence in Taiwan can be summarized as a Renaissance adventure that after ten years of searching for consolidation lost its mission, and ended in Baroque pessimism. The reasons for the Spanish arrival were as neatly squared as the fortress they built and left behind: trade, the counterbalance of Dutch power, and missionary access to China and Japan.
