As many of the comments are bad I'd love to point out the fact the estate is not run down and it's surrounded by a beautiful scenic place. If like myself you are fascinated with Ardotalia 'malandra' you will find that you can actually stand...More

There is literally nothing visible of the old Roman site. If you want to visit a field with absolutely nothing in it except grass, very much the same as any other grass covered field then you may enjoy Melandra "castle". Make sure you lock your...More

Difficult to find as there is literally nothing to see...just an outline. Better to read a book or a website.
