Very nice, but the small of road circles are more impressive. This one is a bit large and less intimate and magical.

We walked from our hotel through the lovely village and came to a fence and little closed check in spot. Fortunately, it's open through the daylight hours, at no charge, and we were able to visit alone. People come and go, marveling at the mysterious...More
