Where in the World is Gary? #219

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 (#218) is Lugano, Switzerland

Parts of the structure date to 1119 AD, although much of what visitors see today was added or reconstructed later. Henry VIII made considerable modifications in 1519 for his wife, Catherine of Aragon. The Tudor style of the castle today is the result of work completed in 1823, funded by the sale of the estates of Thomas Fairfax in Virginia.
