A nice stop over on the way to see Zeus' cave. Only a few euros to get in but there were some nice photo ops. Make this part of your journey.

For 3€ it's worth the stop for photo opportunities and to check out the cool old fashioned wind mills! Lots of bad reviews about the owner, we had no problem. We have been involved in family business, I understand his point. Nice stop on the...More

Cheap entry 7euros for two people. Very tacky and not much to see. Nothing relevant to the area other than the big windmills. But they do serve a good latte!

Although the place has no scientific value, it has massive advantage over other historical museum: they encourage you to touch everything you see. Kids had a lot of fun going around touching all types of tools. Cappuccino is as good as they advertise it:) I...More

The shop was a bit pricey and there wasn't much of interest. Great view of the valley and damn below but not much else.
