Iâ€™ll almost at the
And now Iâ€™ve got just one more hilltop castle townâ€¦
I could catch a bus up the hill, but I figure, what the hellâ€¦ who knows when Iâ€™ll have another chance to hike up to a hilltop castle townâ€¦ Itâ€™s a long windy hike, but thereâ€™s a sidewalk the whole way so it isnâ€™t too bad.
Halfway around the edge I come on a very unusual cluster of Roman ruins. There walls are various layers of brick and tile laid at different anglesâ€¦ sections of the walls are concaveâ€¦ and the entrance leads to a series of inner chambersâ€¦
Luckily thereâ€™s a plaque with a explanation to satisfy my curiosity. Apparently this is the corner of a great Roman entertainment complex, part indoors and part outdoors. Much of it has been destroyed over the years, but this corner still give a bit of a glimpse into this structure.
â€¦Definitely suitable for a video clipâ€¦
