    This is in the Mediterranean, yes. The pathway you see reaches all the way to the city you can see far away.

    It's sort of the point of the game for us to guess that.

    Maybe AoRun just wants me to finally close this round. I thought that Dique de Levante, close to a mile long breakwater with a lighthouse at the end would be distinctive and easily researchable landmark. But I now realize that it is not that unique and I cannot find it myself easily if I pretend to be naïve. So the place is Torrevieja in the Valencian Community.

    Feel free to take the turn!

    Thanks, Morty! Good to see the competition going again.

    This one may be too hard for me because I do not recognize any architectural style or anything that might help me locate the place.

    A little hint: its in Germany and the house of the two castles served in the 18/19 century in the russian or prussian army. There is a butterfly zoological garden near and the castle is a beautiful wedding location today.

    The castles are laying on a little brook, who is ending into the Rhine.

    Schloss Sayn, I think. Searching for neogothic castles worked.

    Iskar's ability to find a random house on the map is nothing short of astounding.

    Edit: oh, Morty had proveded some substantial hints. But that doesn't change the general fact.

    Indeed, a beautiful example of art nouveau achitecture. Was it too easy with the quote above the door?

    Without the quote i would have also guessed Berlin or Vienna because of the "neo-roman temple style". Its quite typical for Berlin or Vienna around 1900.

    But you would have to search longer without the quote.

    Is that an elephant-shaped shrub? I don't know where it is*, but I want it.

    * Britain, maybe? Looks like a renovated Elizabethan style manor.
