Mustio manor ("Mustio Castle", "Svartå Slott") was built in 1783-1792 by Magnus Linder, the owner of the local ironworks. There had been an older manor from the 17th century, but it was dismantled when the present one was built. The manor represents the neoclassical ("kustavilainen") architecture.

Today Mustio is a countryside hotel. There are also the old ironworks and one of the biggest private historical parks of Finland.

Very nice place to visit on sunny day. It is quite famous for wedding events there. We didn't try to eat the restaurant there but the foods looks so good. Would be nicer if they have served coffee with some buns for visitor can sit down and relax.

In the middle of nowhere sits an old manor. Nice, well designed houses, well kept park. And decent breakfast for those staying overnight.

I stayed in the Edefelt-building and was happy with the stay. Also, I recommend the tour in the castle; it’s a beautiful place! Take a stroll in the gardens and swim in the nearby beach.

Very nice gardens with interesting buildings. The cafe and restaurant were open and quite busy. Definitely worth a visit.

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.
