the website makes it loo a lot bigger than it is, there is a lot of steep steps to climb to view what looks like a lot of stones in circle patterns. We went as a day trip but after less than an hour had seen it all and it was time to move on. Disappointed.

9000 thousand years of history in this very interesting village. Very well presented with reconstructed houses to give a real feel of life so long ago. Excavations continuing.

It is certainly worth to see any archaeological sites and ruins however this place does make a history lover disappointed due to the lack of information and setting of how the ruins have been preserved.

One of top places to visit in Cyprus. A place where people had lived nine thousand years ago. Difficult to imagine. And we can still see this. Easy to find, good pathways inside. But not for disabled people...

This place is really amazing when you think how old it is, they have done a good job of replicating some of the tiny round dwelling so you can really appreciate how they were built. It is quite a climb to the actual settlement area and not really suitable access for disabled people ( none that we could see) they... More

The site is not very impressive but if its antiquity is considered is worth a little excursion and takes no more than an hour to see. The reconstruction helps you imagine the village.

Couldn't believe such sophisticated building and cultural skills were possible 7000 yrs ago. Well worth a look
