    Is a beautiful site recovered and transformed by the FAI, suffice it to say that before was almost a dump. You walk in the middle of lemon trees ... bergamot ... and a thousand smells. You pay 6 euro...ma are well worth the money and it helps you recover other monuments.

  • It was informative and educating but could use some use better signs and indicators to guide visits around the area.
  • Beautiful place with many interesting plants.
  • Are many, if not all, of the varieties of citrus located in qualke km2. It's crazy the microclimate of that place. Being a place owned by the FAI, I can assure you that it is worth visiting. Within the Valley of the temples, is striking back 2000 years back, surrounded by various temples.
