Google Photos Magic

I am traveling and I noticed something interesting about the photos I was uploading to Google Photos. I shot the following image with a Sony Nex 6. This is a great small camera that takes very nice photos. When I uploaded images to Photos, I noticed that it was attaching a location to the images. This is pretty much where I was when I took this image. The Sony Nex 6 does not have GPS capabilities. This image is not a landmark Google might be able to identify. How does Google do this? This is not the location from which I uploaded these images. Is it using other images in the sequence it can identify (Castle at Ha Ha Tanka) to assign a location?
