Forgotten Stone Village: Rarely known by foreign tourists but retaining the memory of a generation in Fujian

For tourists from other provinces of Fujian Province, Fujian tourism is always Xiamen Gulangyu, followed by Zhangzhou Tulou, and finally Nanping Wuyi Mountain. But friends familiar with Fujian know that Fujian’s natural and cultural attractions are very rich, far more than these. However, due to the uneven development of tourism around the region, many of the original ecology, the original taste of the scenery is forgotten, such as in the village of Zhangjiao in Quanzhou.

In fact, in the early days, such narita kagoshima stone houses were not uncommon in the coastal areas of Fujian. Due to the local sea and frequent typhoons in summer, the ordinary wooden house simply cannot adapt to such weather, and the stone house is just in line with the local residents living needs. It can withstand the wind and rain, resist the typhoon this kind of bad weather, but also it can resist the acid corrosion of the sea breeze, warm in winter and cool in summer. Then for a moment, everyone built a stone house.

However, this kind of stone house earthquake resistance is extremely low, with the economic development, but also for safety reasons, many villagers have demolished stone houses, have built new buildings. At the same time, the government has introduced a “stone reform” policy, resulting in fewer and fewer stone houses, so far, such houses have rarely been seen.

Invaluable, in Quanzhou Quangang area also retained this ancient coastal buildings, is mainly represented by Zhangjiao Village. This kind of house is different from the modern people’s construction of reinforced concrete, but is made of stone, even the steps in front of the door are stacked with stone layers.

The roof is made of bricks and tiles, and each tile has a small stone stacked on it to increase the weight of the tiles, thereby better consolidating the roof. It is said that the stone houses of the rich and noble families are all built up flat and flat, while the poorer families are built with different sizes and different shapes of stone.

Although this was only a form of construction which the coastal family had had to do at that time, it was unexpected to look at the stone houses again and again, and to find that their effect was somewhat casual and informal. Perhaps this unexpectedly mischievous design is the beauty that photographers want to capture more than brick houses with rigid rules.

These stone houses are not only a feature nrt to kagoshima of the village to attract visitors to visit, but also a living fossil deeply rooted in the village. The houses bear witness to the vicissitudes of the stone village, where generations of villagers are born and old, carrying the deepest memories in the hearts of generations of old people. Perhaps it is precisely because of this heart of concern, so that these houses continue to show in front of the world, the generations passed on.

Unfortunately, although quanzhou is adjacent to xiamen, the tourism industry has not been its leading industry, although its territory has more natural and cultural tourism resources than xiamen, but did not play its advantages, so that zhangjiao village, such a characteristic tourism village with the nature of network red, only a few people visit.

And such a stone village, across Taiwan’s celery village has been a famous tourist attractions. At present, only a small number of photo-lovers in the province, the group will travel, and for the province’s mass tourists, changjiao village has heard but do not know where its specific, let alone provincial tourists.


I ran out of reasons to smile. Then you come along.
