Fantastic value for money. At least 3 hours to visit properly. Lots to see and quiet because it’s outside the city.

There is so much to see here, and a lot of it has been very well preserved. The area is huge, the setting is beautiful, and the cost is inexpensive. Plan for at least one hour, but two or three hours would be better.

With bus 118 you stop right in front of it. Usually entrance is 5 euros, today it was free! What an enormous sight, with well preserved floors and decorated walls. Well worth a visit!
