  • Firstly, note that Google's location is not quite right at the time of writing... head to the car park further down the road as that is the entrance! This place is a bit of a gem. OK, it is a bit of a hike down and then up, but the guides to the flora and fauna on the way are really interesting. The shrine itself is quite amazing bearing in mind how old it is, and it all seems so peaceful and mindful when you arrive. Lots of info available at the entrance and on the guide you are given so you can understand how something over 3000 years old came to be so well preserved.
  • Great small hike of 180m up and down. Not so many tourists. Nice guides. The information plates may be a little outdated (and only in italian), but it was no disturbance to us. Beautiful temple!
  • Enthusiastic guide provided a wealth of knowledge and brought the site to life. Also enjoyed the challenging walk to the actual site whose isolation added to the overall mystery - off the beaten track but worth a visit.
  • Beautiful walk (about 15 minutes each way), with great views & variety of plants. With tickets you get quite interesting description of the antique well.
  • Small, but exquisite sacred spring from the Bronze Age. 800 meter walk losing 130 meters altitude, largely shaded, from parking to spring. Narrow 1-lane, mostly paved, road access to the parking.
