  • The view was nice, but not unlike the rest of the views in this area. When we arrived the gate was open, but it was closed behind us while we were in there despite never having seen anyone. It gave a bit of a weird feeling to the experience.
  • It's the first time I've seen where my family came from.
  • The place itself has nothing special. Will be that when I visited it was raining and everything was closed, but did not give me the impression of an agglomeration characteristic or worthy of a visit. Can be reached in 5 minutes walking distance from the main street. Nothing of that.
