Amazing archeological site at the top of the mountain. Its fountains are still working and very impressive. The Entrance fee is less than 2 Euro, the view is priceless.

Very unique place. Well worth seeing. It is on the top of the mountain so there are beautiful views of the old village. Highly recommend a walk through the village to meet the hospitable people.

Magnificent, especially the restored Nymphaneum and unrestored theatre. Worth the diversion when you are travelling down to the Mediterranean coast.
