These ruins, are surrounded by a beautiful garden, which makes the ruins romatinc and kind of magical. My favorite parts were the fountain, the upper choir and the old façade. The entrance is a little expensive compared to other ruins (Q40), but it's still worth...More

Beautiful it was worth 40 q (5.00) the way they preserve the building and doing the restoration of it. We walked the area by ourselves. Then we were offered a tour which we refuse but the guide kept following us. So we figure ok Just...More
