This must be an undiscovered gem of the Peloponnese – it remains a mystery to me why, on a sunny morning in mid-September, we were the only visitors. Some reviewers have referred to the site being difficult to find, but it is well signposted once...More

There are a large number of tombs here. Some are small, some medium, some large, some very large. They are shaped as squares, rectangles, circles, or irregular. You can explore many of them. One tomb still has skeletal remains in it.
