El castillo está en ruinas.Apenas hay unos cuantos muros en pie.Yo fui allí de senderismo y hay que subir bastante para llegar hasta él

Nice views from the top but not really worth the trek in July. All the paths were over grown and the were all spikey bushes or thorns. We pushed through out of pure stubbornness.

Ruta exigente dependiendo desde dónde se haga,pero el tramo último para conquistarlo no hay quien te lo quité. Vistas 360° :sierra del Pinar,sierra de La Silla con el Lagarín y el Grajas y el puerto del Boyar donde caen más litros por metro cuadrado de toda España. Si,si , consulta ese dato

Demanding route depending on where it is done, but the last stretch to conquer it, there is no one who took it from you. 360 ° views: Sierra del Pinar, La Silla mountain range with Lagarín and Grajas and El Boyar port, where more liters fall per square meter of all of Spain.

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
