This place was truly interesting because it is one of few historical structures still standing. This gate was attacked by the Japanese in the war and was the scene of one of China's most heroic defensive efforts against an invading army. The gate itself is a massive structure about 30m thick. It has many tunnels that are being used by musical artists to practice their instruments, I presume due to the unique acoustics. The gate is also tall giving you a great view into all directions. It is possible to walk onto the wall into two directions. If you like history and architecture or simply need the kids to run themselves silly, then don't miss this.
