A castle preserved by the municipality of Roost Warendin which deserves your visit when it opens. Next slot, the Heritage Days in September.

Surprising and exciting, this pretty castle is worth the detour! Built in the middle of the 18th century, it has been restored (parquet, marquetry and grisaille paintings are from the period). Emptied of its furniture by the former owners, it now houses a museum "of ancient times" with reconstructions of daily life at the beginning of the 20th century. Thank you to the person from the town hall for the guided tour which was as interesting as it was friendly.

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.
