Triora, Italy - Here is a blog posting showing the same picture: http://www.nsmb.com/4334-big-mountain-blog
woah..... i was gonna think Locarno after geneva, but no... i dont know about this place at all...
That is it! Everyone likes that photo, including me! There are never huge amounts of tourists there, but always a good many Italians. I am quite fond of the place.
The way to find it is googling all about witch cities. Triora shows up with most witch city search combinations.
I definitely learned something today - first, it turns out that St. Martha is always depicted with a broom, pot ladle or keys. Second Triora looks interesting and I should be putting it on my list of things to see in Italy. Thanks to jbcarioca for an interesting photo.
Here is my photo:
Kew Botanical Gardens?
No - not a garden - and not in that country
Spa Colonade, Marianske Lasne, Czech Republic
No, but very, very close
Karlovy Vary Colonade?
Yes - and I was trying to come up with becherovka, spring water and spa references if i needed to give a hint.
Well done Kalboz!
Thank you JB ... next:
Somewhat Italianate grillwork. Venice??
Good guess but no ... same continent though. Clue: This is part of a structure that was completed in 1902 and built in part with cast iron.
Federal Palace in Bern. (I have no verification)
No, Sir that is not it ...
Another clue: this structure connects two parts of this city and designed by a disciple of Gustav Eiffel
Gustav Eiffel had many disciples, something says me to move in direction Lisbon.
You are there! Santa Justa Elevator connects downtown to Bario Alto, located many meters uphill. Inaugurated on 10 July 1902, it is the only street lift in Lisbon for public service. It was built by the architect Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard in cast iron enriched with filigrana details. In 2002 it was classified a National Monument.
Well done to all ... your turn Merlin!
Oh shoot, that was a shot in the darkness and a hit. Now you can guess were I am the next three days. One clue before you look at the photo, I got my 43rd UK airport today and it's placed to the south of this city.
It looks like I need to add some information about this city. It's one the many cities founded by the Romans. It's name also bears this marker. The city was founded in the 70s AD. The city has also a close connection to today's aviation industry.
Sure looks like Chester to me.
That's where I am - at my second home away from home - Cheshire Cat, looks like Fawlty Towers without John Cleese and Emanuel. In case you wonder what my 43rd UK airport was, it's Cloucestershire Airport. I flew in from Isle of Man this morning on a Manx2.com flight with a Dornier 228.
So you drove up from Gloucestershire? Bit of a schlep.
