On July 6, the annual Hangzhou Liangzhu Day commenced with a series of events.

The Chinese-Spanish guest delegation experienced an immersive tour of the Liangzhu Ancient City Ruins Park and the Liangzhu Museum, witnessing the vibrant and innovative spirit of this historic site.

Enrique Julio Toledo Blasal, director of education, culture, archaeology, and heritage of Toledo Province, Spain, noted the global challenge of preserving earthen ruins in humid environments.

Liangzhu is renowned for its jade culture, particularly the exquisite jade ceremonial objects unearthed at the site. The delegation was amazed by the quantity and craftsmanship of the jade artifacts discovered at the King's Tomb at Fanshan.

To fully immerse in Liangzhu culture, guests participated in a jade DIY workshop. Using files, they crafted jade birds, creating unique necklaces with a distinct Liangzhu charm.

The group also visited the Liangzhu Ancient City Ruins world heritage monitoring and management center and the Liangzhu Museum. Here, they explored the digital and intelligent systems used in the site's preservation and management, delving into the similarities and differences between Chinese and Spanish civilizations and appreciating the richness of Chinese culture.
