Hongcun Village

Hongcun Village is located at the foot of the southwest of Mt. Huangshan, only 11 kilometers away from Yixian Town. It is a unique, buffalo-shaped ancient village, covering an area of about 30 hectares. Hongcun Village has always enjoyed the name "a village in the Chinese painting".

All the buildings follow local architectural style, have exquisite carvings and are magnificent symbols of its time. They were built with fine craftsmanship that is regarded as the best in China. The village now boasts 158 dwelling houses dating back to the Ming dynasty and Qing dynasty, about 300 or 400 years ago, nearly 140 houses are still in good shape. Because of this extraordinary feature of the village, Hongcun Village was added to the list of the World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in late 2000.
