Miejsce bardzo dziwne. Obiekt przepiękny i ociekający historią, ale toczy się tam remont na niby, a w rzeczywistości nic się nie dzieje. Takie coś zabite dechami - kuriozalny i na szczęście unikatowy widok.

Wstyd ! Wstyd ! Tak niesamowity kawał historii zaniedbany, zabity deskami. Niby majętny właściciel kupił, ale coś się nie kwapi, żeby ta piękna, majestatyczna budowla odzyskała swą świetność. Wstyd , że nikt nad tym pieczy należytej nie sprawuje !

The body of the palace is still visible in the relatively recently taken photographs. Now the palace is almost completely overgrown with spontaneously grown trees, from beyond which it cannot be seen. Soon there will only be a pile of rubble left. Pity!

Interesting historical place.

Object for sale. As you can see in the photos, the body of the castle is still holding up. The castle was built in the years 1380-90 as a stronghold of the commander. It was the territory of the Bart tribe conquered around 1240. This fortified castle was built after the revolts of the local population who slaughtered the Teutonic Knights stationed here.

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.
