Landmark
Sanxia Old Street, once an important commercial center, serves as one of the longest old streets in northern Taiwan. The 200-m (656 ft) pedestrian zone features early 20th century Baroque-style buildings, which were restored to their former glory in 2007. Red brick archways adorned with traditional Chinese-style carvings stretch down the street that was once home to numerous merchant houses. Today you can come here to grab a bite to eat, sip on a nice hot cup of traditional tea, or pick up some local handicrafts.

  • 亭仔腳(騎樓走廊)的建築是三峽老街的特色之一,昔日舊稱三角湧真讓人百逛不膩~ 這裡有清水祖師廟及興隆宮(媽祖廟),都是香火鼎盛的廟宇!  more »
