Un castello bellissimo contornato dalle sue mura e dalle Alpi della Val Venosta, purtroppo non siamo riusciti a visitarlo all'interno per questioni di tempo... ma sicuramente sarà da ritornarci appena ne avremo l occasione.

Beautiful castle but unfortunately we could not visit it inside because it was closed but very suggestive and a view of the peaks of the Val Venosta ... to return as soon as we have the opportunity

Wonderful castle, spacious rooms with great acoustics - top location for singing days, cultural courses, exams, etc. Make sure you plan a tour of the castle! A wide range of supporting programs in the region: a marble tour in Lasa is recommended. Rooms (especially single) in the guest house are also quiet, clean, pleasant and functional. Cooperation with the course organization is extremely professional, personal and efficient. All in all, Goldrain Castle is a very recommendable address - we'll be back soon!

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.
