Maravilloso enclave de un pequeño pueblo burgales

Impresiona ver esta torre fortificada en medio del páramo. Da la sensación que debió ser importante en el pasado. Una pena ver cómo está construcción, reflejo de la Castilla medieval, está abandonada a su suerte. Eso sí, cerrada con llave para que además nadie pueda disfrutar de ella.

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.
