the ruins here are amazing!!! This museum was established in the 1800's and it has a great collection that has some great documentation of the finds made in the city. It is worth the visit. Closed from 12:00 - 16:00

You could spend one hour here or four. The museum is not huge, but it is well organized and extremely high quality. When we went it was not crowded at all. There was also a very friendly cat.
