There is everywhere fruit march fall from the trees and many fruits are rotten on the trees, the paths are not properly cared for (weeds, brush, etc.), there is no guided or recommended route and at the entrance is told to turn the paths as the better you believe. The price of entry is very expensive and absolutely disproportionate as far as it is offered. The total amount of tree species present also appears to be much lower than the amount advertised on the leaflets. The visit to the caves was not possible (it was said that they were only open on Sundays). Unfortunately a site that would have great potential but absolutely mismanaged. Discouraged.
Un giardino magico.. L'eden Sei vai alla valle dei templi, non puoi non vedere cotanta bellezza! Stupendo more »A magical garden. The Eden You go to the valley of the temples, you can not see so much beauty! stupendous
Really quiet and well maintained gardens, with traditional olive, citrus and pistachio trees. Truly a pleasure to explore with the old temples in the background.
Lovely gardens. Makes sense of why the temples next door. Good place for a picnic. It's quiet and a bit cooler.
