Where in the World (357)

The two towers in the distorted image flank the Porta Magna which is the entrance to the Arsenal. Given the style of the buildings you will not be surprised to learn that it is not the home of a North London football club. It is the entrance to one of the earliest large scale industrial complexes in Europe. Ships building and armouries were housed here and supplied  Europe’s most powerful navy of the time. Many people miss this part of an iconic city by staying on the well trodden tourist trail but it was the home of much innovation including prefabricated ship building. The Arsenal can be found in the city of Venice.

Congratulations to Dave (@travelling_dave), Atul (@pixodentist), Jackie (@jackiesjourneys) and Tim (@timofnewbury) who all identified the city correctly as Venice.

Also congratulations to Beverley (@bevsackville) who identified last week’s city as Pisa but was left off the list of winners.

This week’s distorted image presents more of a challenge but there are plenty of clues to guide you to which part of the world. After that it might be that you have to resort to a little research on Google or Bing. Good luck.
