If you’re planning a trip to Zhengbin Fishing Port in Keelung, don’t miss the ruins of the Agenna shipyard right next to it.
The towering concrete walls, reinforcing steel corrosions and crumbling walls give a mysterious atmosphere that attracts many people to take photos. Even Hollywood star Chris Evans, who plays Captain America, has visited the area to shoot a commercial, making it one of Keelung’s most popular tourist destinations in recent years.
Built during the Japanese colonial era, the Agenna shipyard was the terminus of many railroad lines that collected gold and other minerals from Jinguashih and transported them to Japan.
At the end of the Japanese era, the shipyard was leased to an American yacht-making company, Argenna Shipbuilding. Although the shipyard is now abandoned, the mysterious industrial atmosphere continues to attract photographers.
