Don't miss seeing this historic site. Incredible that it remains and has not been razed by previous generations. A simple reminder of the ancient history of this area and its people.

Part of large network of parks along river. The place is well known from centuries ago. Would not recommend to arrange as dedicated trip as there is nothing special to see. The set of stones have been constructed most recently and looks like modern construction...More
