Head east down the road from the junction with Xikang Road and take time to stop at No. 1220, where you will find a beautiful lane reputed for its Spanish garden style building. Building No. 2 was once Avondale House and was built in 1930, one of the few Spanish style buildings erected by the Spanish in Shanghai. The three-story garden residence covers an area of 1,350 square meters. The building with its exotic and stately exterior is still in good condition due to proper use by current residents and good care-taking by Shanghai's municipal government. Arabic-style motifs and gothic style decorations can also be seen on the building.
