CHINESE CULTURE

In this section, the reader will find articles related to Chinese culture in English.

Many of them are of our own production, elaborated throughout the more than 15 years that this page has been in operation, others are extracts from books or articles that we have dared to publish (generally after translating them) because of the interest they have for the English-speaking readers.

We are in the process of converting all the articles to a more modern format, but given the hundreds of articles in the different sections, it may take a few months.

The main sections are:

GENERAL ASPECTS OF CHINESE CULTURE

HOROSCOPE AND ANIMAL SIMBOLISM

MOVIES
