Chenggong Village (Cheng Kung)

Village in Kinmen

The major attraction in Chenggong Village is the splendid Western-style Chen Ching Lan Mansion (陳景蘭洋樓; Chénjǐnglán Yánglóu), built in 1921 by the eponymous businessman with the fortunes he made in Southeast Asia. The building with a Beaux-Arts facade and southern European classical features was later turned into a hospital and then a recreation centre for military officers during wartime. It’s now a museum with dull displays of the building’s history.
