Spread over 3 sites. Site 1 has an information centre which is well worth a visit. Sites 2 and 3 require transport to get from site 1. Good walking shoes are recommended.

We visited sites 1 and 3. Site 1 has the most jars spread mainly around a couple of areas. We were told they were thought to be around 2500 yrs old. There are various shapes and sizes but mainly big! It's certainly a good place...More
