  • We walked to this tomb, about a Mile from the road, and it was an easy wall. The tomb is well worth a visit even if just for the views that you get from it.

  • Impressive from the outside. And amazing how they built the structure to withstand quakes and survived all these years. But rather creepy, has a weird smell and dark. So if you are claustrophobic...

  • Great place, impressive architecture and beautiful location. The way there is a little bit complicated as the road is pretty bad in some places. The last part of the way is a footpath through an Olive plantation but there are markers to show you the way. There is a fence round the tomb but you can open the gate yourself. There is a well written explanation on the site. Absolutely recommended!
  • A dirt road 2,5 km from the village need to leave your car and climb a trail, sufficient marking
