Liebfrauenkapelle

Zug, Switzerland

Liebfrauenkapelle, oldest church in Zug, was built in the 13th century at the same time as the first city walls. From the outside, the Liebfrauenkapelle was a bulwark forming part of the edge of the city, with a somewhat surprising delicately decorated interior, showing aspects of both the Late Gothic period, with its murals, and the Baroque period, with the scenes depicting the life of the Virgin Mary. This old chapel in the middle of the Old Town has a particular atmosphere of its own, which is why it is very popular place to get married.

Beautiful church, situated in the picturesque old city of Zug. The two streets leading to the church (Unter altstadt and Ober altstadt) are adorned with beautiful old buildings. Don't miss the theatre casino of Zug (50m to the south) and the clock tower (150m to the north).

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.
