Parsberg Castle

Parsberg, Germany

The Parsberg Castle was first documented in 1205. The first castle was destructed in 1314 by Duke Ludwig of Bavaria due supporting the rebellion. The castle was rebuilt and extended in the end of the 16th century. The next reconstruction took place in the mid-17th century, probably due the damages in Thirty Years' War. The lower castle was added then, where today is a castle museum.

Anruf genügt und es wird einem Einlass gewährt das ist wohl ein einzigartiger Service in der heutigen Zeit. Wunderschöne Anlage mit einem super Museum welchem man die tatsächliche Größe gar nicht ansieht. Da hat sich Anfahrt und Besuch auf jeden Fall gelohnt. Macht weiter so, ich komme auf jeden Fall wieder. P.S. Der Eintrittspreis ist unschlagbar!

Temple of Portunus

The Temple of Portunus or Temple of Fortuna Virilis ('manly fortune') is one of the best preserved of all Roman temples. Its dedication remains unclear, as ancient sources mention several temples in this area of Rome, without saying enough to make it clear which this is.

The temple was originally built in the third or fourth century BC but was rebuilt between 120-80 BC, the rectangular building consists of a tetrastyle portico and cella, raised on a high podium reached by a flight of steps, which it retains.

The temple owes its state of preservation to its being converted for use as a church in 872 and rededicated to Santa Maria Egyziaca (Saint Mary of Egypt). Its Ionic order has been much admired, drawn and engraved and copied since the 16th century. The original coating of stucco over its tufa and travertine construction has been lost.
