    It's famous for wood-fossils, very rare indeed. A geoheritage site, already declared. It's not an archeological spot, rather palaeontological. A future geotourism site.

    One of the few protected sites for wood fossils. Please visit and make it popular. Wish it was interpreted well.

    Nothing good to see. Boring place. If anybody is interested in archaeology than it's good.
