Fenghuang Ancient City 鳳凰古城



logo


鳳凰古城位於湘西邊陲,古稱鎮竿,是一個苗族、土家族為主的少數民族聚集縣。
傳說古時有一對鳳凰從這裡拍翅而起,小城從此便有了這個美麗的名字。
明清年代鳳凰是政治軍事重鎮,於2002年成為中國第101座歷史文化名城,重新大力發展旅遊文化。

鳳凰歷史悠久,風景秀麗,青山綠水、古橋、吊腳樓、寺祠、亭閣、民居、石板街等,實在美不勝收。
鳳凰地靈人傑,清淺的沱江穿城而過,一代又一代撫育著古城的兒女,邊城作者沈從文、國畫大師鬘疇伈ㄛO家傳曉的名字。

在城內處處尋找翠翠和爺爺的身影,無功而還;在江邊秒秒細賞山水與古樓的畫意,有求必應。
鳳凰,就是如似的難以捉摸!

Fenghuang (Phoenix), an ancient town of historical and cultural significance, is small yet picturesque.
Fenghuang is resided by many ethnics such as Miao, Tujia, Han, Hui people etc.

The town was moved to its present site during about 1368-1644, when the major inhabitants were soldiers,
sent to quell Miao ethnic minority "riots" by the Ming Dynasty government.

Most of the wooden buildings in the town were built by Miao and Han people in Qing Dynasty (1644-1911),
the ancient architectures have been kept intact, including the primitively simple and tranquil slabastone or flagstone paved streets
and the stilted houses with strong local flavours on the river banks.
