Very interesting story attached to this place. If you like Ancient history you will love it. We went to Zolonga on the same day. Also a great place but 2 or 3 hundred steps to climb !! Cant remember the number exactly. We went on a cloudy day this made it easier to climb. Sandra and David Bonser from Nottinghamshire

Just go there! It is so beautiful but mystical, we caught a lot of orbs on video. Go there, you'll not regret it. It's actually not much to see, it's just a building..BUT, the energy..and histor..and mythology. Explore it!

The interesting question is whether or not this is really the site of the ancient oracle of the dead. The ministry website and the information panels would have us believe it is. For the reasons why many doubt it, see the Wikipedia entry for 'Necromanteion'. Personally, I wasn't convinced.

As with most Greek ruins and stories, you require a very large pinch of salt. Apart from that the site is well signed with explanations. If you dare to venture down the metal staircase to the "Gates of Hades" be very careful, the area is dark after the sunlight and the floor dangerous. What is good is it is free... More

Worth a visit if you know a thing or two about it. The feeling of the underground tunnel (and the silence in there) is unforgetable. Restoration and preservation works were carried out between 2010-2013. There are many information boards that give you a picture even if you don't know what the site is about or you don't have information book.

It's really interesting and kinda spooky, but you have to know at least a little about the history of place to fully appreciate it. The view from there is absolutely amazing. If you go to Acheron river after visiting Nekromanteion, I guaranty that will have an unforgettable day.

We picked a rainy/gloomy day to explore this place, and weren't really dressed for the weather. As a result, we rushed round and didn't really appreciate it. The view from there is absolutely amazing, though.

Quite interesting, but we were disappointed that the church is closed for further exploration. The information displays are well done.
