Great preserved site. Due to barbarian invasions and malaria eventually all the inhabitants abandoned it. Because it was buried by sand for centuries it is remarkably well preserved. Great historical insight. Everyone needs to do this one!

Our guide, Melanie, from "City Wonders", was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic...More
