    Above Bürgstadt you will find this church ruin made of red sandstone. The chapel was built by Bürgstadt centcraf Leonhart Gackstatt, but the construction work had to be interrupted in 1630 due to the Thirty Years' War. Since then, the chapel is unfinished in its place. From there you also have a phenomenal view of the Main, Miltenberg and Bürgstadt.

    The designation "ruin" would seem apt in appearance ... but in this case it is not. It is not a destroyed or demolished building, but an unfinished building.
    Why the chapel was not further developed after the war is unknown. In 1630, he gave away the already acquired bells, the installer Centgraf Leonhart Gackstatt, to the Franciscan monastery Miltenberg.

    One may think that it is a ruin. But this is not the case. The construction was finished at the onset of war and the chapel was not finished.

    Beautiful place outside with benches and a wonderful view of the Main Valley. The chapel was written in the previous tips already relevant.
