Amazing town that the movie industry has used often. It's very interesting to walk through. Not a true functional town anymore, so eat and get water before or after.

Never in may life have I seen a more charming place! The little houses are amazing, so small, with narrow streets. No electricity, no water, people are living like hundreds of years ago! We had a guide who explained what we saw, was amazing!

Beautiful place . Amazing views from all the stop points. There are sellers scattered about near the bottom. Be prepared to step though... there are a lot of stairs ! But it is worth it !

There aren't a lot of options for food, accommodation or activities in the town in my opinion, so since you have a car I'd recommend a day trip to visit the site. The climb to the top isn't very difficult/long for someone of... More
