This is the first European Heritage Map of Bangkok and Ayutthaya, highlighting 65 sites in Bangkok and Ayutthaya that are of importance in the history of European-Thai relations. It provides unique insights in the rich and diverse history of Euro-Thai relations and reminds us of the historical foundations on which today's excellent relations between Europe and Thailand are based.
The sites of Portuguese origin mapped are the 3 churches by the Chao Praya river - Santa Cruz, Conception and Kalawar (or Rosário) - and the Residence of the Portuguese Ambassador (the oldest diplomatic mission) in Bangkok. The Portuguese Camp, in Ayutthaya is also pointed and described for its historical relevance for Portugal and Thailand.
The European Heritage Map was produced for EUNIC Thailand, the Embassies of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom, and the Delegation of the European Union.
EUNIC Thailand (European Union National Institutes for CultureThailand) is the common framework for the promotion of European culture and European-Thai cultural dialogue and exchange.
