A long time ago everything that was sold from China to Europe was transported over land.
De Chinese built a long wall to defend themselves against savage nomad tribes from the north.
To be able to sell goods to other countries, they built this gate in the wall.
Traders were prohibited from entering China.
Everything that went to Europe, was sold at this gate.
Afterwards, the goods were transported over the sea.
