Had a wonderful time here with the family. There's a lot history here. Even more so, there's a ton of things that are shown off wide open for people to observe from the castles history in time. Very, very cool and educational. The fries were a bit expensive though, but it's alright. Supporting history preservation is a good thing.

A fantastic place with a winding road - the best for motorcyclists but they should be careful.

The most realistic castle I've visited in Poland so far. Very beautiful!

Beautiful castle with a lot of areas to walk and observed, as well outside it. It is worthwhile to join guided tour with the guide whose appearance and attire is from the medieval, he tells a lot of cool stories. There is a small bar so you can have a snack. When travel by car drive into the courtyard- there are more parking space then before the gate.

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.
