17/43.-Hoi An, Phu Kien Pagoda door


The first archeological rests found in the region date back to 2,200 years ago. This indicates that at that time there was already a small community of fishermen and farmers. From the year 200 to the mid-900s, Hoi An was part of the Champa Kingdom. One thousand years ago Vietnamese took control of the area.

The first contact with European dates back to 1516, when Portuguese sailors came ashore at Danang. Soon after this city became one of the most popular ports in Southeast Asia. This traffic enriched many locals, who opt for building opulent houses.
