A place

I checked with reverso.com, and they have Cette falaise me rappelle de Douvres (place). Not just Douvres. How come?

This relates to:
Rappeler (à quelqu'un) = to remind (someone) -

Bonsoir Joan,
So I ran the phrase «This cliff reminds me of Dover» through google translate as well as the translator on the Collins-Robert and neither used «de» in the English to French translation.
Might I suggest that the translation provided by reverso.com might be better explained by contacting reverso.
J'espère que ma réponse vous aiderait.
Bonne chance et bonne continuation dans vos études en français, la langue de Molière et qui a été utilisé par le monde français depuis l’époque d’Hugues Capet

There are three ways to say "This reminds me of something."
1) Cela me souvient de quelque chose.
2) Cela me rappelle de quelque chose.
3) Cela me rappelle quelque chose.

As you can see, rappeler works with and without "de". However, souvenir requires "de".
