new7wonders - The Great Wall of China (220 B.C and 1368 - 1644 A.D.) China - A Grande Muralha da China

The Great Wall of China was built to link existing fortifications into a united defense system and better keep invading Mongol tribes out of China. It is the largest man-made monument ever to have been built and it is disputed that it is the only one visible from space. Many thousands of people must have given their lives to build this colossal construction. MORE

A Grande Muralha da China foi construída para ligar fortificações já existentes, criando um sistema de defesa unificado que impedisse as invasões do território chinês por tribos mongóis. É o maior monumento já construído pelo homem e o único visível do espaço. Muitos milhares de pessoas pagaram a construção desta estrutura colossal com a própria vida.

  1. Sweet Casaca, you are so nice to introduce it right away i meowed out to you. : )
    It's a pity that, as a Chinese, i have never been to this place, for i live in Taiwan,
    a little island far away from the north Mainland China.
    Feeling happy to see it in your blog, i would like to say thanks you for this.
