Shipped from Shanghai in China piece by piece, the whole arch was
put together by Chinese craftsmen in the year 2000, just in time for the annual Chinese, New Year celebrations held
in this area every year. It has been repainted and gilded for the European Capital of Culture year, 2008.
Protected by two bronze lions, and placed correctly with the principles of Feng Shui. The archway in all its glory simply states one thing, Zhong Guo Cheng or simply translated "Chinatown."
