The wall was built in the fourteenth century and has been rebuilt several times.
This is one of the most beautiful, largest and well preserved Chinese fortified walls.
At the top, the wall is wide at around 50 feet.
On plan, the wall is rectangular and enclosing a very large protected area of houses.
To add to the beauty, the wall is surrounded by a moat.
