I can't bear to see if this incredible site has also been plundered and destroyed. Its location, high on a plateau overlooking a vast flat valley landscape is truly awesome. The site was (2007 when I went) extremely well looked after. There's the usual locals selling their handmade products, eking out a living selling olive soap, honey, postcards... very simple tourist objects. To see the actual tower where St Simon sat upon for a year just brought biblical history to life. It's a wonderful sight and site.
