I would have expected more from such an important site but it's not been given the attention it merits. It's free to get access and there are a few ruins, the remains of the smith eater being the best.

I give this a five based on peace and quiet. You are surrounded by olive orchards and it's beautiful. While the ruins are not as grand as others that is because Alexander the Great destroyed them and Sparta during his conquests. Worth a visit of...More

Quite spread out but worthwhile. Good views across to Sparta and the mountains. Evocative of ancient times but ruins leave much to the imagination. Information boards around the site.
