Well worth a visit if you're in the area. Very peaceful and well maintained with a lovely view of the coast. We went on the Little Fun Train which stopped here for approximately 20 minutes.

Amazing, beautiful, serene place that makes you think the craziness of wars. We visited also the memorial of killed locals in Kondomari, very humbling experience that too.
