Interesting Archaeology.

Interesting, but too busy when we went. Queued to go down into the meditation cavern! To hot for queuing. Probably best visited in small groups.

Make sure you read about the way religion worked in ancient times. Some things never change. A must visit for people interested in ancient civilisations

What a wonderful discovery this site was if you know the history or read up on it before you go it is simply astonishing, so terribly accurate to what we once believed to be myth, the little church which was built on the original covered Nekromanteion is a little jewel and probably built to christianise the site.

Hearing tales of the Underworld etc I was looking forward to a bit more than someone just allowing us to roam. A guide would have been helpful

Called here on one of our trips.. we arrived around 11am the sun was really high in the sky up in the high 30s .. to get to the ruins you have to walk 800meters up a hill... a bit hard going.. but well worth the visit.. lots of mythology in this building... really enjoyed it...
