Castle now in ruins. Very beautiful but unfortunately only some remains can make us imagine its beauty of other times. The village is very nice and well kept. Very open and suggestive panorama

Unfortunately abandoned to itself, and officially it is definitely closed, but it is a wonderful structure. A disaster to see it unused and destined to collapse.

Salendo per tutte le vie del borgo, che è molto bello, si arriva fino al Castello che un tempo era una fortificazione difensiva. Peccato che ormai sia in condizioni pessime. Siamo però riusciti a salire fino in cima, perché l'erba era tagliata. Bellissimo il panorama!

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.
