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 (#355) is La Romana, Dominican Republic
Where in the World is Gary? #356
Latitude — 43° 51′ North
Longitude — 10° 30′ East
The main square of this place was once a Roman amphitheater, as evidenced by its shape. Roman occupation here dates to 180 BC.
This place was the birthplace of composer, Giacomo Puccini, and performances of his operas are a mainstay of the entertainment here. Tall, narrow towers are a prominent feature of the skyline here; one of the towers is even capped with oak trees.
The intact city walls are now used as a pedestrian promenade.
