[Q1] Does the city on the Notre-Dame wonder tile span 2 o 4 tiles? The dirt patches surrounding Notre-Dame extend to 2 adjacent square spaces (top and right). It is a bit ambiguous in visual terms, since there is no actual wall closing the city but the houseless dirt patches with Notre-Dame bordering the field.

[A1] The city only spans across 2 tiles. The dirt patches surrounding Notre-Dame are graphically necessary to close off the roads there.

[Q2] Some wonders such as Notre-Dame, Circus Maximus and Alhambra include a field between two roads that touches the wonder. Is this field considered to touch the city or only the wonder (and therefore no city)?

[A2] The field only touches the wonder. A wonder is always neutral and not part of a city.

As a consequence, a farmer placed in a field only bordering a wonder but not the city adjacent to the wonder will not score points for this city. It is a similar case to a field only touching an abbey but not a city completed by the abbey.

Note that the field surrounding the monastery on the Notre-Dame wonder tile only touches the wonder.

[Q3] The outer stone circle limits the surrounding fields, so there are 4 fields on the Stonehenge wonder tile. Is this correct? 

[A3] It is exactly right.

[Q4] Do you get the Stonehenge bonus if you complete an unoccupied road and then you add a meeple to it on the tile just placed?

[A4] Yes it is possible. You place the meeple in 2. Place a Meeple right before you perform 3. Score with a wonder.

The Stonehenge bonus does not require the road to be occupied in a previous turn. The road can be occupied in the same turn it is completed but before the road scoring takes place.
