Härlig miljö delar av kyrkan kan var från början av medeltiden men iconographic och att kyrkan omnämns i arvsrätt på 1400 talets början tyder att den nuvarande är från sent 1300 tal.. Helt värt ett besök.

Kaverit eivät päästäneet sisään koska olivat pihalla syömässä.

Très jolie église, peinte à l'intérieur ce qui est une très belle surprise lorsque l'on ne s'y attend pas.

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.
