It’s Wednesday so that means it’s time for another “Where in the world am I?” photo challenge! This week I was inspired by another travel blog that I follow, Holes in my Soles. On his site, Jim asked people to post photos or stories relating to the Cycle of Life. I interpreted this in an abstract way, by juxtaposing a photo of an old Baroque tower with one of its reflection in the windows of a modern building across the street. I love it when cities have architecture from different epochs standing side-by-side.
So, do you know where I took these photos? Like in weeks past, I’ll give no clues up front, but will periodically tweet and post clues on my Facebook and Google+ pages to help you out. So, if you don’t already follow me on Twitter, click HERE.

Here are the clues I’ve given so far:
|Clue #1: The name of the city is derived from a Celtic word meaning bright or fair.
Clue #2: The city centre is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Clue #3: There are more people buried in the city’s central cemetery than are alive in the city.
Clue #4: Sister Cities include Moscow, Tel Aviv and Tunis.
Clue #5: A capital city, it was once part of a mighty empire.
