My trade with Lydia was for four cards, the penguins, these two and a new unesco. These two are from Beijing and Suzhou City.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Beijing also known as Nantang (the South Cathedral) to the locals, is a historic Roman Catholic Church located in Beijing, China. While the original foundation of the cathedral was in 1605, making it the oldest Catholic church in Beijing, the current building in the Baroque style dates from 1904. - in: wikipedia

This is a card of the Lion's Grove Garden, famous for the large and labyrinthine grotto of taihu rock at the garden's center. The name of the garden derives from the shape of these rocks which are said to resemble lions. It is recognized with other classical Suzhou gardens as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Lion Grove Garden was built in 1342 CE during the Yuan Dynasty. - in
