We started from Syvota having hired a car for a day (E45 Isabella Tours, Syvota. A one off, let's go out decision but car immediately available) but Parga just as easy. Lots of parking and loos. Shop in the village. Incredibly ancient site used by different cultures over the centuries. Gate to the underworld in that people would go there... More

A fascinating place and do get a good guide to provide the history and myths of the place and area. I hope next year the centre will be open to all and the relics returned to their rightful place

Quite well preserved site at top of a low hill. The underground chamber was quite spooky. Kids would love it. When we went various improvements were being made for visitors so it should be even better in the future. We drove to the site but I think you're meant to park in the town and walk about 200m to the... More

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.

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
