Abstract: Chinese world has been generally associated with a rural settlement pattern. However, Chinese cities have played an important role throughout history, being a reflection of the society of the time. The aim of this article is to present the characteristics of the Chinese cities seen through the eyes of European informants. Specifically, we will study the physical part of the city (urbs) enabling us to analyse firstly the importance and function that the urban centres had in late imperial China. Secondly, it will allow us to understand the interests and the specific perspective of the Spanish and Portuguese from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
