Amazing, gorgeous, beautifull scenery.

From the first structure in the early 13th century and destruction in 1821, the Gothic structure was built around 1340. The exterior looks really ancient and there was no sign activity or access on a Sunday afternoon.

Excellent monument of Medieval Navarese culture and architecture. There are a lot of statues and bas-relieves still intact. Most interesting are the figures of sleepy guardians in armors of XIV century at the scene of the Resurrection.

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.
