    wait a minute, does this mean the Moors founded Paris?

      Ha ha! No, they didn’t get quite that far, though they did make it past the Pyrenees. But I guess I should have said “holiday resort.” Any guesses? More clues: this place has more high rises than Paris but has a population of only 71,000.

    Could it be Malaga?

    Ok, I think we need another hint. Is it Lugo?

    Valencia?

    Another hint?! This is an easy one! It’s where package tourism was invented. I know there are a lot of British readers out there…it’s your classic summer destination. Also popular with Belgians and Dutch people. It has the tallest hotel in all of Europe. It’s not on the Atlantic. Alright! Enough clues…
