Propriétaire très accueillants pour un site à voir

Il s'agit d'une propriété privé ouverte néanmoins au public (journées du patrimoine). Aucune signalétique n'empêche l'accès si le portail de l'entrée est ouvert. Le calme et la vue ainsi que la qualité de la rénovation sont merveilleux.

Pas indiqué dans le village. Une tour visible de loin et ? Grille fermée. Pas d'information complémentaire. Ne pas faire le détour.

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.
