Very good surprise in a small coffee at the local cafe. I ordered a coffee and a few moments it was in front of me. The friendly local residents felt at home there.

A visit here is really to two separate places. Parking is about half a mile from the necropolis and you need to walk through the village of Arteara to get there. The village remains agricultural and there are several information boards telling you about the...More
