Great Wall of China, Ancient fortification in China

The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications that were built across the historical northern borders of ancient Chinese states and Imperial China.

Its construction started as early as the 7th century BC with the main purpose to protect the Chinese empire from the invasions and raids of the various nomadic groups of the Eurasian Steppe.

The Great Wall has been an important symbol of the Chinese nation throughout history, representing the strength and perseverance of the Chinese people.

Today, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in China, attracting millions of visitors each year.

With a total length of over 21,000 km, it is the longest man-made structure in the world.
