Photographer's Note

The castle Pfalzgrafenstein was constructed immediately after a dispute between the Pope and king Luis de Baviera in the year 1326 and 1327. Luis became many enemies on having demanded a few tolls desorbitantes. For it, the Pope gave to the archbishops of Cologne (Köln), Tréveris (Trier) and Mainz (Mainz) three times the order of which they were punishing the King with sorrow of excommunication, but without success.
The result was that Luis made erect a tower on the craggy rock Falkenau in the middle of the Rhine; later there was constructed there the castle, like customs castle.
