The history here is great and we have a good time when we go. The price is a little steep.

This is a very small one room ruins. It has very crumbly walls. I don't think you can even enter the ruins any more. There isn't much to see.

The main building is well preserved thanks to efforts to get it covered in the 1930s. There are guided tours, or you can take the printed guide and walk the grounds yourself. Use sunscreen and wear a hat. A bottle of water is useful too....More
