I remember that there was a thunderstorm and the roof was leaking right in the place where I was sitting, even the light went out. It was just before St. Francis' Day where the priest came out with the initiative to bless the animals. I was also another time and even when I was a child. It is the main object in Legnickie Pole and, in my opinion, it deserves to be commemorated to some extent.

When you manage to enter ... One of the most beautiful interiors of Silesian Baroque churches, by Czech artists and sculptors. May it be admired by everyone after the renovation.

A historic place and a gem of baroque art. Currently under constant influence of European funds. Legnickie Pole, located by the motorway, makes little use of its location. Hardly anyone knows. Worth a visit, take a short break from your journey.

Величний оригінальний комплекс з давньою і багатою історією і таємницями. Директорка сусіднього музею може розповісти багато цікавих подробиць з його життя для тих, кого цікавлять сакральні споруди. Рекомендую зайти до музею і запитати в неї, чи можна організувати екскурсію до базиліки.

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.
