  • 在我很小的時候 哥哥就常帶我去 ……陳家祠 并向我講解其歷史故事 多年過去了 出於對陳家祠的一份情懷 舊地重遊 剛好這天 下了一場大雨 把陳家祠洗刷得 乾淨 脫俗 遠看 莊嚴 肅穆 典撲 脫俗 走近 屋頂的陶雕 美艶 生動 栩栩如生 祠內的“三雕” “兩塑” 突出嶺南建築的特色 精美絕倫 流年於青臺翠瓦 為前人所做出的傑作 折服  more »

  • Different from most temple like buildings in China, very special.
  • Worth to visit
  • 还行,虽然大部分应该是被破坏以后又修复的,有很多工艺品展示很不错
  • 很有岭南文化特点的建筑群,保留得非常完整,交通便利,无论地铁还是公交都方便。距离上下九不算远,逛完可以去上下九吃东西。
  • 陈家祠其实并不大,但是里面有很漂亮的工艺品,有纪念品商店,分几个区,特定时间有志愿解说者,持有学生证有优惠,里面的雕刻工艺品与刺绣让人印象深刻,票价便宜,值得一去!
