Cerro La Torta in Chile.

Having covered the world's deserts several times looking for it, seeing the ocean on the west edge really helped.  Even then, South America was the last desert in which I looked.

RIGHT! Good job!

 

Tocorpuri is a  stratovolcano made of several eruptive centers that are aligned to the northeast of the principal crater. The location of the vents is controlled by a fracture. Cerro La Torta is the gray volcanic dome to the Northwest of Tocorpuri. It is made of rhyolite and has a volume of 1.1 cubic miles (4.7 cubic kilometers). It formed during a single eruption. An age date for a sample from La Torta provides an age estimate of less than one million years for the volcanic dome.

 

You're up Steve :)

Good job, Michael.  I found this site a few months ago and didn't figure out what it is until yesterday.

 

The coordinates are:

N43.253   E5.792

 

Where do we go next?

Hint: this is actually a quite famous castle, at least among protestants :-)

Ok, the castle is the Wartburg in Germany, near the town of Eisenach. It is a World Heritage Monument and famous for being the place where Martin Luther translated the New Testament into German.

Anyone wants to continue?

Maybe they were all on vacation.  With the last clue somebody could easily have figured it out.  Try again, Michael.

 

Has anybody kept the database of previous places up to date?
