Location: Torre Mozza      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 16 November 2019

Torre Mozza is a former coastal fortification built to guard the coast against Saracen pirate invasions and to control ships loaded with minerals from the Isola d'Elba.
Now it has been transformed into an expensive resort (closed in winter).

If you had seen this beach in the summer, it would hardly recognize.
But the sea, out of season, has always its charm.


great riddle !! 
name of the structure begins like a well known italian cheese.

Found it as well. The tower is even visible in 3D on Google Earth, making things easier. It is from the 16th century and now contains an expensive hotel. Cheers, Martin

It could be on Skye or Lewis and Harris - that's not the only reason I like it ;-) !!

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

Dear Hans-Jörg, it was a bit of a trap. I was hoping someone would say it was in Scotland. But unfortunately there are on this website experts of Italy ;-)

Scotland does not have fences...

Dear Martin, unfortunately on this website there are also experts of Scotland ;-)

Perhaps it is better to specify that the cheese to which Christoph referred is the Mozzarella.

Stavo pensando: ma come, il profilo dell'Elba in Scozia?
Poi mi e venuto in mente che in Scozia hanno perfino il Colosseo...

Occorre anche precisare che lo scorso week-end è stato molto critico dal punto di vista meteorologico per la Toscana. Non è che l' aspetto sia sempre questo fuori stagione....

Infatti, Alberto - ricordo ancora molto bene il tuo commento al colosseum ;-) ... #13432 e meglio vedere su #23680 !!
