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 (#250) is Capitol Reef National Park, Fruita, Utah, USA
Where in the World is Gary? #251
Latitude — 37° 53′ North
Longitude — 4° 46′ West
This was once the largest city in Western Europe (500,000 people). Its mosque-turned-church contains 1,000 red and white striped Moorish arches, made from marble, granite, onyx, and jasper.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site has been called the “Athens of the West.” There is a bridge here that dates to the Roman Empire.
This city was once the capital of a Moorish Caliphate, as exemplified by the Moorish castle.
