  • Interesting place. We viewed it through the fences because the entry fee is high (for our group of four people some of which are particularly not interested in archeology.) This is an important place for the greeks' pagan origin. I wish the entry fee were affordable so that more people would visit the site.
  • Charming place, very interesting historical background.
  • That was a nice surprise! The location within the forest makes you feel like being part of the ancient mysteries. Part of the ruins are very nicely reconstructed
  • Must visit if you are in the area!
  • This is a must see if you are in Samothraki. It has such history that you can literally touch. There is very little standing between you (if any) and the exhibits and no lines. A gem.
