The Punic warship and the building it is housed in are very impressive. There are some interesting items as well. The staff seem to know very little. Outside is completely overgrown, you'd need an over active imagination to make anything of it at all. A...More

The site is large but virtually empty. There is a partly exposed roadway, the remants of the floor of a baths and a museum. Almost all the information boards are blank and the museum has hardly any explanation in English. Not worth 4 euros!
