    Honestly, I knew it as Clothilde's Palace, or Buda-Bar Hotel.
    However, since you said it's located in the Franciscan Square, I suppose we are talking about the same building, so you are correct!
    Unfortunately, since I am thought of being naughty, I can't rep you, so I am asking from another person to rep you, on my behalf.

    It's the same square anyway. I only found it because of the Franciscan church in the background

    Ah, one of my fav places in Athens, it's the Roman forum in Plaka.

    Correct!

    I owe you one rep, but I need to spread some around first.

    (p.s. tnks to the anonymous rep donor for the square of the franciscans).

    Considering there aren't that many towns in Norway at all, a surprisingly simple search might turn up something.

    If you're talking about the building on the left, that is the abandoned Fetih Mosque, I believe.

    Of course, your turn. I need to rep some other people, but will try and remember.
