We had it all to ourselves as it is not well advertised and even the locals are unsure of its existence. Wonderfully peaceful in the 400bc remains which are still under excavation.

Nice spot on the way to Kaloni, worthy to stop if you like architecrure. Peaceful and calm. Entrance just 2 euro. We were alone here, no other tourists.
