The gentleman who was manning the site was very informative and helpful, and we really enjoyed walking the tunnels, reading about the history and seeing all of the artifacts.

On a clear day the views really are spectacular: to the North, Kissamos, with the headland and sea beyond; to the South, the snow capped Lefka Ori - and great views in every other direction too.
