    Al ser un yacimiento vivo, cada vez que lo visitas te enseñan algo nuevo. Merece la pena, incluso en verano, ya que la ser de noche las temperaturas son soportables. Una visita muy dinámica. Las explicaciones hacen que las dos horas pasen muy rápidas. El sistema de audio te permite no tener que estar todo el mundo pegado al guía.

    Nothing that exciting herr

    First this tour is really for history buffs and archaeology lovers. It was very boring and honestly could of spent my time doing something else much better. Also the tour was in spainish and i contacted in advance since i don't speak spainish. They said the guide would translate some. She didn't speak English. Since the majority of travelers speak English its necessary a travel guide learn the language folks.
