The castle is located in Wächterburg on the shopping street Eger - Asch - in Central Germany. It was a fort in the 17th century, surrounded by a baroque castle. Now runs the restoration; unfortunately very long. The castle served as a guard castle on the trade route Eger - Asch - to central Germany. It was later a fortress until it was rebuilt in the 17th century as a Baroque castle. Recovery is now in progress; unfortunately very slow.

Castle Park ?. Unfortunately, the chateau is half-ruined.

The torso of the castle at the end of the republic is not much worth the state

A nice castle, built essentially as a wall around a church that is in the middle - perhaps on the site of a former fortress. You can see that the owner is trying to fix it and come back because some parts have been completely collapsed. At the same time, there was a very nice park in front of the castle, so hopefully the owner can handle it and once we can see the whole castle from the inside. ?

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.
