Where in the World is Gary? #85

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 (#84) is The Outer Banks, North Carolina, USA

Where in the world is Gary?  #85

Latitude — 37º 2′ North

Longitude — 7º 55′ West

This place was one of the last Moorish strongholds in Europe. It was sacked by the Earl of Essex in 1596. It is known as the capital of the Algarve and received severe damage from an earthquake in 1755. A beautiful gate leads into the charming Old Town.
