The attraction is easily accessed from the nearby dual carriageway which is handy but also means that the road is clearly visible when you're looking round, which detracts slightly. There is a large, free car park and small toilet block. The ticket person was friendly...More

Near the bottom of the archaeological settlement is a reconstruction of the dwellings. There's also information about how the buildings would have been built and used.

An interesting UNESCO world heritage site which can be visited on its own or plays part of a heritage trail. Although the actual site is reached trough a steep and rugged terrain, the reconstructed huts are informative and interesting

The buildings were constructed of stone foundations with mud-brick upper walling. Sadly it has been restored using cement to consolidate it, giving an unrealistic appearance. It is quite unremarkable in appearance, the buildings seemingly merging into each other, but it is for its artefacts that...More
