North Gate, Taipei

#13 of 36 in Historic Sites in Taipei
Historic Site Tourist Spot
Check out North Gate, the remaining part of the once-planned city walls of Taipei. Originating from the Qing dynasty, the wall had five gates, but only the north one still stands to this day in its original form. The picturesque structure--made from stone, with red-painted external walls--stands out from its modern surroundings, creating a great photo opportunity. Make North Gate a centerpiece of your Taipei vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Taipei itinerary maker.

  • The only gate that survived the Japanese restructuring of the city. Would have been more impressive if there were more of the wall intact. Also there was construction work going on.  more »
