Knightfall is a popular HBO fiction series which goes deep into the history of legendary brotherhood of Knights Templar. It tells the story of their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the betrayal that would lead to their tragic dissolution. Knightfall was filmed in Czech Republic and in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Here are the most beautiful filming sceneries, also worth of seeing in real life.
Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.
Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.
Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
