    Not a castle this time.Think more along the lines of places of worship.
    Don't want you spending ages looking at Castles,lol.

    No,not the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral.
    I'll give you a clue & narrow it right down for you,it's not in the UK,LOL.
    Funny you should mention Liverpool,have actually visited one of it's other Cathedrals,the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral,which is very striking & was built in 1962.

    Another big clue for you.The water you see in the pic is actually a fountain,but the actual cathedral building is only about 150 yards from a large well-known sea.
    Hope that helps a bit.

    You're spot on with Palma Cathedral on the Island of Mallorca(or Majorca).
    Yep,this island is part of Spain & sits on the Mediterranen Sea & the Cathedral totally dominates the harbour-front at Palma.
    Check out the link below for a distant view of the Cathedral & the harbour area.Not a very clear pic bit gives you an idea how the Cathedral dominates this area.
    Beautiful part of the world.
    Well done on getting that one.

    Well, there I was developing basilicaitis (I'm actually dizzy from googling basilicas... ooohhhh) and it's all over!

    I'm the kid who covers their eyes and counts to 100 while everyone else runs home!

    ;~)

    PS I was googling basilica because I couldn't remember the word Cathedral!

    MCD56,as you won this guess-where I'll offer you the choice of some top prizes,lol.

    1 A week's all-expenses paid holiday at a top hotel in Palma
    2 A lavish meal at your nearest Spanish restaurant
    3 A massive Spanish Sombrero
    4 A lifetime unlimited supply of Sangria
    5 A postcard of Mallorca

    The choice is yours,lol.If you don't take the sangria I suppose I'll have to drink it!!!

    PS Check out this clearer link of Palma Harbour with the Cathedral on the left.

    Well done, MCD! Nice array of prizes there, Paul.

    Beautiful structure. Haven't seen a picture of that cathedral before.

    Rafiki, I'll bet there are support groups online for those with Basilicaitis.

    The more the merrier.Seeing as we're all millionaires now why don't we all head off to Palma this weekend with all the pennies we accumulated on my other post,lol.

    Yep,it'a pretty impressive building.In my early 20's I went to Mallorca twice on holiday,but unfortunately I never visited the Cathedral,but I did drive down the coastal road just beside it on a moped.Very beautiful place & the weather there is amazing,80F to 100F all summer long.
    Support groups for basilicaitis,lol.

    I'll bet zipping around Mallorca on a moped was a lot of fun.

    I'm over at the stone house all by myself while everyone is here having a merry old time.

    I'm taking my pennies and going home.

    MD What you said about the bankers... lol

    Peace
