  • We went there is to do in the area, but we were rather disappointed... Certainly the fault has a history, but it appeals to a lot of imagination, there is little of reconstruction, so it's hard to imagine, even if it is interesting... And there is a nice view of this fault. So the price of €8.50 is a little too high for my taste

  • Find a site to visit a Saturday, November 19... When you're in weekend... and well, this is one of the few open, and really we are very quiet to do... Nice place under the rock and back to a very distant civilization... Excellent explanations for young and old. To do.

  • Children and adults alike enjoyed this visit that explains how lived civilizations since prehistoric times, and the changes over the centuries. Off season, very few people so we see much better and we can take the time to visit at your own pace.

  • Amazing place and well preserved. Worth a visit. The facilities are great and the food onsite is a bargain.
  • A very interesting site of a former cliff side town. There aren't any structures left, but you can wander through the cliff and look at the fittings carved into the rock and let your imagination fill in the rest.
  • Stunning site of surprisingly rich archaeological significance. Fascinating and well worth a visit.
  • Really amazing views
  • Splendid view! Impressive 'rocky' terrace! Must-see!
