This place is amazing. You wander through the ruins, next to the river that runs into the sea and just explore freely. They are still excavating and piecing together the history made it all the more exciting for me. Prices are an issue, everything is...More

There are tons of ruins making up a town or village. Best thing is that you can find ruins scattered ouside the main settlement where few people go. You’ll get a better experience without IKEA arrows here. There are also a nice beach and cliffs...More
