    So much history and so accessible with you being able to freely walk around through and even inside it! A chance to really immerse yourself into ancient history with boundaries and roped off areas.  more »

  • Interesting to see the remains of the houses from such an early time. Wonderful views.
  • We went here - whilst on our honeymoon - instead of Lands End. This was because it's commercialised like Disneyland. 😝 Would love to go back! 😎
  • Enjoyable visit. I would have liked to know how much of it was original and how much has been reconstructed. I may have missed this information?
  • A nostalgic piece of history, remarkable.
  • Will definitely return to this sacred place. My girlfriend and I loved the kissing gate... 😘
