  1. No solution yet, but I like this puzzle.
    Is it a reservoir on a mountain water in an old pit mine? And if it’s the latter, who had the crazy idea to convert it into a fun park with slides, a beach, a chairlift and what looks like mountain bike downhill parcour and a wide grassy lane for something else?

  2. It has certainly had me spinning around trying to decipher the clues.

  3. I liked the shape of it. With Valentinesday around the corner …

  4. … and yet it doesn’t appear in any of the “heart collections” on youtube/GEHacks/Gearthblog etc. Dammit, will have to find it the old fashioned way….

  5. Hmmm, Girona is in Catalonia. Palo Alto is in California. Beyond that, I got nothing. :(

  6. Girona and Palo Alto are connected through this place…

  7. Cap’Découverte (the words in the pic!)
    81450 LE GARRIC

    About 10 km north of Albi, France (twin city to both Girona and Palo Alto)

    I don’t have GoogleEarth access, but I found it via GoogleMaps! I can give co-ordinates this evening when I get home.

    I really thought this would be in North America, or maybe (for some odd reason) in former Yugoslavia.


  8. Nice one Alan. I searched most of the south coast of France but never came this far inland. Should have paid attention to the clue here. A quick wikipedia of the two places, and Albi is obvious…..

  9. Well done Alan.
    I’ll give the co-ordinates: 44 01 15 N, 02 08 39 E
