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 (#96) is San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain
Where in the World is Gary? #97
Latitude — 37º 56′ North
Longitude — 27º 20′ East
This place was an important trading center during the Roman Empire. It was once the home of the Temple of Artemis, one of the original “Seven Wonders of the World.” This place was abandoned when the seas receded so is better preserved than many ancient sites. Its library was one of the three (3) most important libraries in the ancient world.
Its roads were paved with marble.
It contains a fountain dedicated to the Roman Emperor, Trajan.
St Paul spoke here at the amphitheater. This place even had communal toilets with running water.
