The visit I most liked

 

To talk about what has been the visit that I liked the most is a very complicated subject since all the places we were in and had the opportunity to visit have been a great sample of culture and international history.

If I had to choose some serious The Great Great Wall as it is the greatest architectural icon of Chinese culture and one of the wonders of the World.

The Great Wall of China is an ancient Chinese fortification built and rebuilt between the fifth century BC. And the sixteenth century to protect the northern frontier of the Chinese Empire during the successive imperial dynasties of the Xiongnu nomadic attacks of Mongolia and Manchuria.

The wall was designated a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1987.Approximately 10 million workers died during its construction. They were not buried in the wall itself, but in its vicinity.

Having the opportunity to tread the steps to climb to the top is undoubtedly one of the best moments lived during the trip.

It was very gratifying to go up with my companions all those stairs and battlements of vigilance strolling through a millenary culture.

The provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions through which the Wall passes are Gansu, Hebei, Henan, Hubei, Hunan, Jilin, Liaoning, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Beijing, Qinghai, Shaanxi, Shandong, Shanxi, Sichuan, Tianjin and Xinjiang.

The materials used are those available around the building. Limestone was used near Beijing. In other sites it was used granite or fired brick.

Forts were built along the wall, or directly integrated into the walls, with a smoke signal system to prevent attacks.

Without a doubt The Great Wall was one of the places to stand out in this great experience.
