This place is ancient.I placed some coins in the underground cavern to show my respect, this is a sacred place & you have the feeling of being watched by those long dead. This is still THEIR place....there is no ill feeling towards outsiders, just be courtious

The place is closed for works (nothing to do with people's safety), until November 2013... We are in a full touristic season and the site is shut down from March 2013. The least they could do, was to place signs to save us from getting up there.

This archeological site is closed for the summer until November 2013 for some kind of excavation work so missed out on this one!

By coincidence we went to the Nekromateion. Nearly three quarter of the site was closed, because of excavations and restauration activities (as far as I know it is closed now until december 2013). We have to pay the full price. There was no information in English. Therefore we didn't know what we saw until I read it later on internet.... More

You need to read up on the site as the actual location has little in the way of information. it is a very interesting site and worth the visit.

As per previous review the site is closed until December 2013 and the gates to the area are locked so you can not see a lot

Difficult to express my feelings, but it was known as being the gates to the underworld. Seeing it once was nice.

As I already said in the title, the gates are closed for visitors from may 15 until noember 30 2013. So if you dreamed to get here, postpone for (at least) one year!
