A park encircles the 13.7 km (8.5 mi) long wall, part of a World Heritage Site and featuring four gates and 12 towers. A U-shaped square in front of the most elaborately decorated south gate serves as a venue for official greeting ceremonies. The barbican (fortified outpost) houses two museums storing various treasures from the Tang and other dynasties.
