    Fascinating place with really knowledgeable staff who are passionate about the site and it's history. We look forward to going back when the grotto is open to the public. Only marked 4 stars as the grotto wasn't open, but it is well worth a visit.

    We spent the entire day on site with our 5 years old son. We took the 3 activities package which are worth it. If you don’t take any activities, you won’t have much to do there. The staff was really knowledgeable and helpful. If you go there on aMonday, the cafe on site is closed but there is a farm 1 km away where you can have a great lunch.

    I never knew that such carvings from this period existed. Excellent tour and in a very pretty village not far from where I was staying at Marpaps.
