It's nice but I don't think it's strictly an Easter Egg... I seem to distantly remember WG saying something about it when they released the map. Or in the map tactics video. Or something. No idea why the Wiki says this is supposed to be somewhere between England and France because it is clearly meant to look all Mediterranean.

Interesting cause when the map was added it was meant to be inspired by the straights of Dover hence the White Cliffs...

didnt know about the specifics of this one, but there are a whole bunch of similar RL locations scattered all around the various maps. WG map designers/artists do like their easter eggs it seems, and good on them! :cap_like:

I have wondered what that building was. It looked distinctive, and I know real world buildings have been modeled in the game. You can find the Château Frontenac on two maps I think, Pena Palace on the Atlantic, Mont-Saint-Michel on Sea of Fortune, and probably others I can't remember or have not recognized.

iChase did some videos on YouTube about those "eastereggs" back in 2016 but didn´t continue it after some episodes.

Started a similiar project by myself and roamed around the different maps for quite a while but gave up on it.

Spoiler

german forum / english forum

Since the image hoster changed the rules some time ago and doesn´t support direct links (image loading to forum didn´t exist back then) the screenshots are gone. Maybe i should restart the project and reupload to the forum directly ...

It's called "Palazzo del Governo", literally "Governance Palace" in Italian. A really massive structure though
