    The Lycian tombs in Myra. I think it's the Ocean Necropolis.

    Correct. Guess which character I've been playing in Troy...

    Well, it's château, but I'll accept it. What gave it away?

    A lucky google search, I entered "Lorraine castle ruins" because I thought one of the coats of arms had what looked like a Lorraine cross on it and it's in your general area. A pic of what looked like it might fit your castle popped up and a further search of that name confirmed that it was, despite the fact that the castle is in Alsace and not Lorraine (and the good possibility that there is no Lorraine cross on any of those shields).

    Correct! Thought that might be harder.

    Yes it is. Your turn. Morticia.

    Bad Kreuznach is a nice city.

    Is this Brielle towards the sea from Rotterdam, Netherlands? If it is, I must say the discovery process was interesting. No search would yield anything useful, so I thought I'll take a look at maps. I decided to start with Netherlands and it was literally the first thing I zoomed into.
