Bjolderup Church was built in the 12th century probably to replace a wooden church. It was expanded in the 15th century and and the tower was added in 1589. It was burned in the war or 1624-1627. In the church there are many paintings from 1778 painted by the Aabenraa artist Jess Jessen. The church greatest treasure is the 'Bjolderup-stone', a tombstone from the grave of Ketil Urnes that now lies in as a part of the church floor and dates from year 1200.

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.
