Nice church, there is nothing particularly remarkable about the place - apart from the view. Graver has not yet been on a communication course !! ? ?

A beautiful whitewashed church, which stands high in the countryside and can be seen from afar. The oldest parts ship and choir were built around the year 1150 in Romanesque style. Like most medieval churches, the church is characterized by the changing styles, 1250-1500 Gothic, to which tower, sacristy, porch were added (1480), 1500-1650 Renaissance and 1650-1750 Baroque.

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.
