The Bopiliao Historic Block was formed in the early Qing Dynasty in the eponymous settlement. With a history that spans the Qing, Japanese, and Republic of China eras, it boasts a mix of architectural styles from each of these different periods, although mostly Qing Dynasty shophouses ranging from one to three stories and pailou-fronted buildings from the Japanese period. The streets themselves are about three meters wide and slightly curved, unlike the straight, wide roads that were opened up during Japanese rule. The buildings and street spaces have borne witness to centuries of development in what is now Taipei City’s Wanhua District and are of particular historical significance.
