Decent english info. Good bathrooms. Water and coffee vending machines. Nice/recentish video with english subtitles, with bewildering musical accompaniment choices; i doubt Sting, Cure, and Led Zepplin granted permission for use of their songs.

Very impressive to see how these people lived and the function of the different constructions. I recommend to first visit the explanations on the first floor of the house on the right after you enter the parc, to figure out what you’re going to see....More
