Take an hour and visit this archeology wonder. You’ll learn about Lucia’s history, how it came to be, and see the results of the actual Dig. Worth the $3 fee. Very informative, entertaining and memorable.

We visited this site last week and were stunned, not so much by the site itself, which has been well described by other reviewers, but by the story of its discovery and the extraordinary commitment of the owners. Trying to enlarge the space for their...More
