An interesting spot for anyone interested in local history of Skåne. There is a small cafe inside with coffee and ice cream.

Very nice castle with beautiful grounds. Didn’t visit the interior since we found the entrance free a bit off putting. However the surroundings are very enjoyable and it’s part of an ecopark which offers lots of possibilities to visit and hikes. Has a nice caffe with a good selection of pastries. Would definitely recommend.

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.
