The oblong-spahed wooden church was completed in 1730. The original medieval church was replaced by a wooden one, but it was destroyed by fire in 1680.

The inner roof is covered with paintings made by Hans Georg Schüffner. The altar and pulpit were made by Nils Falk in 1739. The oldest item is a crucifix, dating from the 13th century. It has been made in Limoges, France.

Beautiful old wooden church. Well worth it! The information boards at the churches indicate where nearby music performances are given in nearby churches.

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.
