Where in the World is Gary? #221

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 (#220) is Mount Rushmore, Black Hills, South Dakota, USA

Where in the World is Gary?    #221

Latitude — 41° 29′ North

Longitude — 13° 48′ East

An abbey crowns the high hill here.



This place was a German Headquarters during World War II and was the site of heavy fighting during the Allied advance. Although totally destroyed during the war, the abbey has been lovingly restored and still functions as a monastery.
