It is ideal to be aware of our cultural heritage of prehistoric history. Well maintained site and with explanatory signs of the site, it is worth the access much to improve on the road of beaten land.

It's worth it for those who respect and like history. A place where about 8000 years ago there was already civilization. Well-preserved location and free access.
Okay. Some stones. Quite a lot of kids running about (including ours!) so maybe not the vibe of quiet contemplation etc the stone circles might have!
Very knowledgeable and helpful staff. Nice local arts and crafts.
