Where in the World is Gary? #132

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 (#131) us Stonehenge, Salisbury Plain, England

Where in the World is Gary  #132

Latitude — 18° 27′ North

Longitude — 66° 04′ West

This is a highly fortified place; a massive 6-level fortress (El Morro), built in 1540, protects the harbor entrance.

The largest Spanish fort in the New World protects the city from land attacks. The city was founded by Ponce de Leon (he is also buried here) in 1521 and was the second Spanish city in the New World. A third fort has become the Governor’s Palace. This place is also the busiest cruise ship base in the world. A fountain in the Old Town, Fuente Raices, depicts the many ethnic groups which make up the population here.
