Arcade Houses in Wanfu Road

The 1,500-meter-long Wanfu Road starts from Yuexiu South Road in the east, and reaches Beijing Road in the west, connecting Taikang Road, Wende South Road and Dezheng South Road. The Arcade Houses in Wanfu Road maintain traditional southern Chinese Qilou characteristics while incorporating elements of the Baroque style, revealing the unique southern culture of the Lingnan area. The traditional Chinese Arcade Houses preserves the characteristics of the southern residential houses. For instance, the ground floor extends to the street; the long corridor crosses over the sidewalk; on each floor the front wall usually has two or three windows at the same height without any other decoration. The Baroque-style decoration is mostly used in ornaments such as rockeries and flowers as well as curves on the parapet walls.
