A quite large exciting area with many well-preserved statues and mosaics. The arena is also well preserved, and you can climb up to the top and get a good overview of the area. Remember to bring drinking water!
This is a fabulous historical site. There are so many great things to see, spread over a fairly expansive area (so take water and a hat!).

There's a little cafe at the beginning which...More

Not wheelchair or buggy friendly.
Small cafe selling drinks and souvenirs. You have to...More
