The first fresco valley which has been relived with glamorous mural paintings in the central city of Da Nang has opened to public after four months of implementation.

Mural paintings depicting cultural life, natural landscapes and people of Da Nang painted on the walls along alley No. 75 on Nguyen Van Linh street in Hai Chau district have attracted a large number of visitors to the place.

Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, a visitor to Da Nang told reporters: "This is the first time I visited the place. I am very impressive. This is a venue for young people to come for entertainment and check-in."

A group of artists from Da Nang city’s Fine Arts Association and the Architecture University participated in the art project worth over 2.5 billion VND, since January.

The images of Da Nang’s signatures, such as the red shanked douce langur, Da Nang beach, Dien Hai temple, Son Tra mountain and the whale worshipping festival are showcased in the paintings.

Truc Hanh, a local resident said: "I’ve visited Tam Thanh – Tam Ky mural village in the neighbouring Quang Nam province. It’s a pride of Da Nang to have such a mural valley. I hope the city will have more models like this to remind visitors of a friendly Da Nang."

According to Duong Huynh Trang who is working on the project, her group has delivered leaflets and layers at the airport and tourism promotion centres to introduce the fresco valley and created a fan page for tourists. "I hope more people will know about the valley.", she added.

Apart from enjoying the beauty of the paintings, visitors also have a chance to take part in cultural activities, including folk games, held at weekends.-VNA
