    What place is this?

    A little competition/puzzle for you all. Along the same lines as the 'Which Hurtigruten' thread, but this one is for shore based things.

    In the image below is a famous building (marked within the red line), can you guess what building it is?

    Too difficult? Need a clue? Well, I would give you one, but there are two very good clues in the photo, one clue should give you a good idea where in the world the place is, and the other clue in the photo should tell you what the famous building is.

    The second clue may not be obvious, but you will kick yourself when realise what it is

    Can you spot the two clues? Have a look and try to work it out, if you guess correctly then feel free to post your own picture puzzle.

    OK, I must think about this and see if I can come up with a good one.

    Correct!!
    The curch is quite new, she was erected from 1929 to 1931 and it was designed by the cities architect, Guido Brass. The mason Sebastiano Bianchini built it.
    And this is clearly Venetian style.
    Over to you, Clipper!

    Saint Anthony's Church, Pula, Croatia. I think the style is Romanesque, not Norman.

    Yeees, you are on the right track. But i don't think that the normannic traces here the key are. But Balkan is good, anyway...

    Maybe a photo taken during your cruise in Greece?

    The Normans were in the Balkans as well. Could it be somewhere there?

    It is also not in italy. But along the mediterranian coast.

    No, not Sicily, but Southern Europe is correct.

    It looks like a Normand - Sicilian style. Sicily?

    Ah. I was wondering what the purpose of this huge bridge is. And there is even a website:
