Beautiful old little church. The relics are beautiful and the harmonious feeling is there so it feels like you can touch it

An old medieval gray stone church on a small hill in a central location in Raisio, an urn grove and a cemetery are well maintained. At Christmas, a traditional Christmas crib greets the walker in front of the façade.

I went today 27.11. in the lower chapel at my brother's blessing. The place was fine and devoted, unobstructed, bright. Good place to quiet down. ?

Ei lainkaan viihtyisä tai rauhallinen! Kova liikenteen melu ja outo tyyli hiekkahaunoineen ja kamaline muovikaukaloineen,joissa kuka eivät selvästikään viihdy!

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.
