A large site

Visited here on the way back to our base but had not realised how big the place was, we visited on a Monday so it was free. Great place

Well, who knew? A tiny island with such a rich historical culture. We went here on a blisteringly hot day, and would probably stayed longer if we hadn't felt we were crisping up, but there really are some amazing facts about who used to live here centuries ago, and the sophistication of the society caught us off guard a bit....

Well preserved but without being unnaturally 'restored' to recreate an ancient site. Lots of useful information as you go around and caves to dip in and out of. The size of it is stunning!
