Delving into the city's spirit necessitates exploring its profound historical and cultural underpinnings. The Bayu culture, the Three Gorges culture, and the Hongyan culture stand as pillars of Chongqing's cultural identity. The Hongyan Spirit, a city hallmark, not only accentuates the tenacity of its denizens but also infuses a vigorous spiritual dynamism into the city's contemporary trajectory.
