Photographer's Note

The old part of Beijing was filled with many rings of ramparts and imperial gates, creating successive barriers to avoid invaders enter inside. The Zhengyang Gate was part of one of these rings, but it was demolished in the 1950's and rebuilt in the same aspect recently. This gate is located very near the previous photos and in the next posts I will show the other tower-gate located in front of it.


A parte velha de Pequim era outrora cheia de anéis de muralhas e portais, eram barreiras sucessivas, feitas para impedir os invasores de entrar na Cidade Imperial. Vemos aqui o Portal Zhengyang, que era parte de um deses anéis de muralhas e foi demolido nos anos 50, mas reerguido com o mesmo aspecto recentemente. Esse portal fica localizado bem próximo dos lugares que mostrei antes, nas próximas postagens vocês verão a torre-portal que fica diante desse portal.
