Belgium helps restore Huế ancient house

A 175-year-old house has been restored to its former glory in Phước Tích ancient village, the central province of Thừa Thiên-Huế.

This is the first time Nhà Rường, a typical kind of houses in the old time in Huế and the central region, to be restored under a cooperation project between Thừa Thiên- Huế province and the Wallonie-Bruxelles region of Belgium .

The project aims to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of ancient villages to help tourism development.

Formed in 1470 under the reign of King Lê Thánh Tông, Phước Tích is the second village in Vietnam recognised by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as a national cultural and historical relic site.

Spreading along the poetic Ô Lâu River, about 40 km north of Huế city, the village still preserves over 100 ancient houses.

People here live on making pottery.

Phước Tích is now a popular tourist destination in Thừa Thiên-Huế.
