A study of Bernkastel’s Gothic St Michael’s Church occupies the left foreground of this drawing, Turner recording its turreted spire and the buildings surrounding it with relative detail. Beyond, atop the conical mount, is the Burg Landshut and on the opposite bank of the Moselle to Bernkastel, the town of Kues.
