Interesting neolithic ruins of a small village, with parts dating from 6800 BC. The ruins themselves are understandably cordoned off, but a nice trail lets you see them from all angles. Reconstructions nearby to demonstrate how the dwellings would have looked. Easy to get to...More

The entrance has some documentation, then as we continued we saw a "reconstructed" copy of some of the buildings as they would have been. This helped us imagine the way the buildings worked. As we continued around the site we came to the ruins of...More

I expected a lot of this pre-historical site and my dreams came true. Situated on the slope of a (rather steep) hill one can see the foundations of many dwellings and enclosure walls. Make the whole trip around the hill: the environmantal trail, you'll discover...More

Savage natural surroundings. A place to visit if found of ancient history. The path that clime from the village to the site is quite long and could put unfitted people to test. There are numerous benches on trail, though. Put some comfortable sport shoes on....More
