Where in the World (318)
Last week’s distorted city seemed to be a little more challenging if the number of correct answers are anything to go by. Notre Dame de Fourviere is the distinctive building in the top right quadrant and below it is Cathédrale Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Lyon. The full name of the latter, obviously, gives the identity of the city as Lyon.
The distorted image for this week is a skyline featuring the city’s most, if not only, iconic structure. Certainly it is the most recognisable of the city’s famous sights and the one most often seen in guidebooks, tourist brochures and postcards.
As usual, you can leave your answers in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW318. If you are on Twitter then you can Direct Message me with the answer which will be hidden from other readers. Alternatively, email me with the answer here.

How good is your knowledge of the cities of the world? Judging by the number of cities my readers identify correctly from distorted photographs some of you know them pretty well.
I have created a quiz of a different kind which I thought you might try. It’s a picture quiz but the photographs are not distorted.
Can you identify a city by a single statue?
Travel Quiz: Statues will take you only a few minutes. It starts with some easy ones and becomes more challenging towards the end. Give it a go and let me know what you think.
“Where in the World…” will continue to be posted each week as usual. Travel Quiz: Statues is the first in an occasional (very occasional) series of quizzes on travel themes.
