Where in the World is Gary? #376

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 (#375) is Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA

Shipwrecked sailors erected a shrine here in 1620. The church that resulted is an extremely popular pilgrimage site and is credited with many miraculous cures.
