Erkan Historical House

Old, traditional-style houses are among the most engrossing of Penghu's many cultural attractions. Besides the scholar's residence in the Xingren neighborhood of Magong and the old Jang Bai-wan house in Waganng Township on Baisha Island, there is a well-preserved century-old residential complex in Erkan Village on Xiyu Island that is listed as a third-class historic site.

The Erkan residence, owned by the Chen clan, is a large family home with many wings. It features relief carvings, windows, doors, and eaves in the classic southern Fujian style. The exquisite craftsmanship evident it its rustic yet refined simplicity highlights the skills of its builders.
