Few countries and continents tell more stories than this tiny town–of Chinese sailors, Arab traders, Jewish merchants and European conquests–set against a backdrop all of one square mile, chronicles that clash as vehemently as the protagonists once did. Captured here are 135 sketches and a commentary that navigates you as you walk across half-a-millennium in half-a-day.
