The Church of Nuestra Señora de la Purificación of Gazólaz, located in the village of Gazólaz, municipality of Cizur, is a romanesque church built at the start of the 13th century. The church was built by the architects of the Order of San Juan. Historians claim that Pedro Ximénez who was the bishop of Pamplona from 1242 to 1266 ordered its construction.References:
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.
