    These grounds are spacious and if you have time, you can explore ruins that are very impressive. The mosaics are well-preserved.  more »

    I write this opinion to emphasize the penalty which gives me a place with so much history and charm is in a situation of such poor care and cleaning: the ruins are filled with waste (water bottles, cans, remains...). And it has no more than a small wall that prevents access with a small jump to any night... More attention to the historical places
