This is just one of the great unesco cards i've received these last days.
"irexe" from China, sent me this Pingyao card.
Pingyao is an exceptionally well preserved exemple of a traditional Han chinese city, founded in the 14th century. It's urban fabric shows the evolution of architectural styles and town planning in Imperial China over 5 centuries. Of special interrest are the imposing buildings associeted with banking, for which Pingyao was the major centre for the whole of China in the 19th and early 2oth centuries.
