It was enlarged in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) from the city wall initially built in Tang Dynasty (618 -907).  You can walk, even cycling on the wall. Its south gate is the most largest with a suspension bridge. Most of the tourists choose the south gate for sightseeing. We would spend about 1 hour here.

Then drive about 30 minuets to Big Wild Goose Pagoda which is a Buddhist pagoda built in 652 AD during the Tang Dynasty and originally had five stories. The original construction of rammed earth with a stone exterior façade eventually collapsed five decades later to be rebuilt by Empress Wu Zetian in 704AD who added five more stories. A massive earthquake in 1556 heavily damaged the pagoda and reduced it by three stories, to its current height of seven stories . We would spend about 1 hour here.
