Burg Spliatsch
The ruins of the tower stand on a small hill not far from the Julier pass road between Marmorera and Mulegns. The interior of the tower is accessible through a small gap.

Description

The ruins of the high medieval castle Spliatsch are located in the municipality of Sur.

A well-preserved tower with three floors and a square floor plan of 8 by 8 meters has been preserved. The well-preserved upper end of the wall could indicate a vanished fourth floor made of wood. The masonry consists of stones of unequal size, which are layered reasonably in storage. In the lower part there are traces of a Rasa-Pietra exterior plaster. On the third floor there was a window with two seats as well as an aborterker and a smoke outlet for the stove.

The high entrance was on the second floor on the west side. The robe stones are well preserved. Remains of beams show the location of the stairs and the balustrade in front of the entrance. Above the door there are remains of a sloping canopy.

On the inside, there are remnants of smooth plaster on two inhabited upper floors. Beam remnants indicate the position of the floors. On the ground floor there are remains of a fireplace with a sloping smoke outlet.

Southeast of the tower, on a terrace, was a supply yard built of dry stone walls and wood; a rectangular floor plan of a small house is still clearly visible. The courtyard was enclosed by a curtain wall, which can still be seen to some extent in the south.

Written documents about the origin of the complex are missing, and there was never a family of Spliatsch. The tower was probably built at the beginning of the 13th century by the Lords of Marmels.
