Historic Site
What was once the gate of the Suwon Hwaseong fortress, Paldalmun Gate sports views from the top of the wall. As you walk along National Treasure (number 402) you'll witness history dating back to 1794. The gate consists of two walls, one is crescent shaped and one provides additional protection. Look for the names of all the people who helped in building the gate inscribed on the wall. The site sits among the bustle of busy streets and alleys, so you can go shopping or grab a bite.
