Chateau Chyše is situated 35 km east of the famous spa town Karlovy Vary. Its origins date from the year 1169. Over the centuries the chateau went through many changes. It began as a fortified settlement before it was rebuilt as a Gothic castle in the 13th century. In 1578 Chateau Chyše was transformed into a Renaissance chateau before a Baroque-style reconstruction completed in 1708.

Between the years 1856-1858 final reconstruction was done. This time the skilled craftsmen created a neo-Gothic redesign. In 1917, world-famous Czech writer Karel Čapek worked at Chyše as a home tutor.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
