The 17th century was a period of great cultural encounter of the East and the West. Meanwhile, it was also an age with astonishing ecological diversity. At the beginning of the 17th century, European cultures and arts were blossoming in the Baroque following the Renaissance. In the end of the 17th century (1694), Gandou ( the old name of Guandu), a small town in the northern Taiwan, became a barrier lake with unrivaled demeanor and elegance due to land subsidence occurring during the Taipei earthquake.
Guandu Plain: An Ecosystem that Gave Birth to All Living Beings
Guandu Plain, the largest alluvial plain in the northern Taiwan, was then created by the deposition of rivers over a long period of time. The vast plain with clean water and fertile soil criss-crossed by rice fields, vegetable gardens, wetlands, swamps and ponds, was not only home to fish, shrimps, scallops and water birds, but also perfect agricultural land that fed thousands of people in Taipei.
