Stretching for at least 1.5 kilometres, it is connected by canals which lap against the foundations of the large buildings on either side.All of the buildings face water on one side and street on the other for convenient delivery. Goods handled were mostly coffee, tee and carpets.
Today this watery warehouse district still functions as actual warehouses, alongside museums, offices and apartments.
It has been awarded the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site on 5 July 2015.
