Simply amazing - breathtaking to see these traces of mankind from over 9000 years ago. The site is located in a beautiful canyon and quite accessible. The guided tours - in EN and ES - are excellent, as the guides really know their stuff, and take roughly one hour.
Worth the drive. But having to pay twice the price because I am a tourist always rubs me the wrong way. Make sure you get the tour with Antonella as a guide. Her passion for, and knowledge of the place makes visiting this place twice as enjoyable.
