Never heard of it! But Netherlands is a good choice to build such pyramid, you can see it probably until down to Breda.

Is it aligned with a constellation?

Yes, 'clogwise' around the house of Norrel ;-)

Good idea, Poly. but this pyramid was built in 1804 by a French general, to honour Napoleon Bonaparte.

There is no constellation involved, Tery. this one was built by the French, not by the Mayas.

The Battle of Austerlitz, also known as the Battle of the Three Emperors, was one of Napoleon's greatest victories... Cheers, Wilf

I think this might be an abandoned mini-golf course!
