An der Loreley by MarciMarcMmc

Die Burg Katz ist eine rechtsrheinische Hangburg in St. Goarshausen, Rheinland-Pfalz.

Eigentlich trug die Burg den Namen Burg Neukatzenelnbogen. Der Volksmund hat das auf Burg Katz verkürzt.

Seit 2002 ist die Burg Katz Teil des UNESCO-Welterbes Oberes Mittelrheintal.

Castel Sant Angelo by highway13Photography

“…in order to build churches for the use of the Christians, not only were the most honoured temples of the idols destroyed, but in order to ennoble and decorate Saint Peter’s with more ornaments than it then possessed, they took away the stone columns from the tomb of Hadrian, now the castle of Sant’Angelo, as well as many other things which we now see in ruins.”
by Giorgio Vasari
