Bartoszyce Church

Bartoszyce, Poland

The origin of Bartoszyce Church is unknown. It was probably build on place of the castle chapel, of which we have some information from 1404, destroyed together with the castle half a century later by the inhabitants of Bartoszyce. The second medieval church in Bartoszyce, at Nowowiejskiego Street, is a simple, monolayer structure following a rectangle plan. Probably it originates from the XV century, although there are some assumptions that it could have been build already in the period of first city location. The bell tower has been added to the facade in the 19th century. The altar and pulpit supported by an angel are an example of Baroque carving of the first quarter of 18th century.

Brother Albert's church is very beautiful and it's good to pray there because there are good pews. Thanks to KS Władysław and people of good will, these people from this estate and the surrounding area have a house where Jesus Christ resides and lives in the Labernacle, so we do not turn away from the church because faith and love to the other person is really needed

To nie jest kościół wybudowany w starym stylu , ale i tak czuć w zniosłą atmosferę

This is not a church built in the old style, but still feel a lonely atmosphere

Kościół sam w sobie jest ładny w środku. Ale na zewnatrz każdy widzi...od lat zbierane są pieniądze od mieszkańców a prace idą powolnie. Pewnie dlatego by móc zbierać do samego końca. Szkoda że msze dla dzieci nie są fajne A kiedyś byly

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.
