Luocheng Ancient Town

Last updated by chinatravel at 2013-11-4

It was built in the first year of Chongzhen's reign in the Ming Dynasty (the year 1628). Up to the present, this surviving old street still preserves part of the human style and features of the ancient Sichuan culture during the Ming and Qing Dynasty. This old street, which is overflowing with the beauty of late afternoon is said to be the sole boat-shaped street in China.

On both sides of this "boat-shaped street", there are a long row of wood structured houses with old roof tiles. The eaves on the side of the street are extraordinarily broad. The houses form a rare long corridor called "Liangtingzi (hall for shade)". Their supporting points are more than one hundred old round logs standing on the long hexahedron stone pillars. For hundreds of years, the local people of Luocheng take drinks, eat meat, drink tea, listen to simple songs, clear ear shit, smoke tobacco leaves and sell quack medicine enjoying the blessing of the human world in the Liangtingzi which keeps off the rain and the sun.
