North Gate, Taipei

(1.8/5 based on 75+ 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.

  • 北門作為景點來說,可說是毫不起眼、人流甚少。這幢清代建築,可讓人近距離欣賞它的歷史價值。從正面看,還能在背後看到三井倉庫,兩幢建築雖屬不同年代,卻巧妙地十分合襯。而旁邊也有臺灣銀行,它的民國建築風味也相當令人着迷。站在忠孝西路、延平南路和博愛路的三角交匯處,便能一次過看到這三個充滿歷史味道的建築。
