This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.
I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!
The answer to yesterday’s place (#135) is Trinidad
Where in the World is Gary? #136
Latitude — 39° 51′ North

This place was once a Visigoth capital (554 AD) and was the capital of Spain until 1561. It was the home of Greek artist, El Greco, whose painting of the city landscape is famous.
The city’s castle was one of the last holdouts against Franco during Spain’s Civil War.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site has a cathedral which is celebrated throughout Europe.
The city is also famous for swords and Damascene.
