North Gate, Taipei
(2.1/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 1884年(滿清光绪十年)落成已超過130年的<<北門>>不緊是中華民國國定古蹟,也是唯一保持建城原貌的臺北府城五大城門。城樓外壁是用红磚砌成,是屬於封閉的碉堡式城門。經過30年被高架橋遮蔽,2016年2月高架橋避拆除,整座北門在同月重見天日。有空的話,不妨坐捷運到北門站或從台北車站或西門町走路不用十五分鐘,到北門參觀這座充滿歷史價值的古蹟,同時遊覽附近其它古建築物。 
  • 以前高架橋從北門上方通過,印象中的北門只是一座屋頂,而現在北門終於可以完整現出原貌與世人相見。看它傳統建築的風韻,雖然只是小小的一座城門,但是不可抹滅它所馱負的歷史意義,值得後人深省。 
  • 北門在台北車站及西門町附近,被行車路包圍住,係一個比較簡單的景點,如果經過既不妨可以看一下欣賞一下歷史
