It's a lovely hike through woods. Some parts of the path are very steep, but even if you're not in a particularly good shape (like yours truly) it's more than manageable. We left the car in the village, in front of the church, and it took us about an hour to reach the ruins on foot. The first part of the path is really lovely, it's mostly in the shade and offers views of lovely fields. The part that goes up through the wood is also very lovely, it's very peaceful and quiet.

Quite a well-preserved building. Solidly marked access hiking trail, perhaps a little neglected.

Wonderful and worth a visit After thirty minutes of easy walking along the hill with a well-marked hiking trail, there is a reward in the form of a long forgotten tower that is so close to Nova Gradiška and so unknown and forgotten.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

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.
