Le Muralle Chinoise

The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall is one of the seven construction wonders in the world.

Qin Shi Huangdi built the Great Wall of China over 2,000 years ago, by Qin Shi Huangdi, the first emperor of China during the Qin Dynasty (221 B.C-206B.C.)

In Chinese the Wall is called “Wan-Li Qang-Qeng” which means 10,000 Li- Long Wall (10,000 Li-about 5,000 Km.).

The construction of the Great Wall begin between the 7th. and 8th. centuries Before Christ.

The warring states built big strong defensive walls to keep away enemies from coming from the North.
