Where in the World is Gary? #338

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 (#337) is Riquewihr, France

Latitude — 31° 51′ North

Longitude — 35° 27′ East

This place claims to be the oldest city in the world (dating to approximately 7,000 BC). It is an oasis in the desert, and a powerful spring is its centerpiece.

A Biblical character called Joshua proved his mettle here.
