Hengchun Historical City boasts a history of more than a hundred years, and is located in the center of Hengchun Township. It's Taiwan's most intact and well-preserved historical city and is classified as a class two national historical monument. The four city gates of the historical city, respectively defend Hengchun's eastern, western, southern, and northern sections, and are made of limestone. Nowadays, the eastern gate is the best perserved and you can even climb on top and overlook the surrounding towns and cities. Aside from the northern gate, which is located in the city outskirts,  the rest of the gates are all located within the center of Hengchun. It's even possible to drive through the eastern gate and the western gate; it's quite the experience to pass through under the thick and sturdy gate. The southern gate is located within the center of a roundabout, and is currently only for pedestrian use. Don't try to drive through it, because as of today, no one has ever succeeded.
