“When my father went south again, he took me with him” – page 24, Chapter 3

“An Ivory city with a molten sunlit sea breaking around its walls, roofs redder than the evening sky inside their tremendous medieval enclosure. The city sat on a large round peninsular, and its walls looked impenetrable.”

The reference to red roofs brought to mind Dubrovnik as shown in this wikimedia image.

Dubrovnik

To quote from Wikipedia

“The Republic of Ragusa or Republic of Dubrovnik was a maritime republic centered on the city of Dubrovnik (Ragusa in Italian and Latin) in Dalmatia (today in southernmost modern Croatia), that existed from 1358 to 1808.”
