Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

My first visit to this city was 42 years ago and it was by water. The domed structure may make this one easy to locate, but what is the area in the foreground? Need the name of this area and the city.

The Cathedral made it easy, apparently. The foreground is their famous Market Square, located on South Harbor.

Seaduction, that was fast: your turn.
