It was raining cats, dogs and blowing sideways at that, so I went through these ruins with a destroyed umbrella and enjoyed myself immensely. The site has some unusual bits, so it is well worth stopping for a look-see even if you get soaked by the rain. Take a lunch and enjoy the wonderful Med view. The site isn't completely... More

The ruins are definitely worth a visit, although explanations and signs could use an upgrade. But use your imagination, walk off the beaten path (of course outside fencing too!) and you will be rewarded with a nice experience.

These Punic rooms are one of the only sites remaining in the world. The site needs some additional explantion/interpretation. The site is very difficult to get to without private transportation or a tour. The site is huge and the location next to the sea gives it a wow factor
