Houpo 16 Art Zone

Historic Building in Kincheng

By day it looks a little over-gentrified, but at night the junction of Juguang and Zhongxing roads is one of Kincheng's most atmospheric corners. The so-called Art Zone here includes a small row of handicraft shops in the century-old courtyard buildings, which flank an historic ancestral hall (陳氏宗祠; Chénshì Zōngcí).

This celebrates the forebears of Kinmen's largest clan, who made their way here from Fujian and, after much hardship, emerged as rich traders.
