If you around Steckborn go and see this nice ruin.. The Neuburg above Mammern in the Swiss canton of Thurgau was built in the middle of the 13th century by Baron Ulrich III. built by Altenklingen. Since 1319 she was as a fief of the monastery of St. Gallen in changing ownership. In 1690 she acquired the monastery Rheinau. The hill castle was however canceled 1745. Today, however, are still extensive ruins with remains of the great curtain wall to see. From the main castle the remains of the foundations of the keep are preserved.

Church of St Donatus

The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.

The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.

The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
