Thankful for other trip advisor reviews so I knew what to expect. Some interesting history. Some big piles of stones. Glad we didn't spend long there.

We did not know what to expect when we drove out here but were surprised by the ruins. It provided a clear understanding of the old city. The ruins set in parkland were particularly interesting plus peaceful

These walls show a big piece of local history. They can be seen as a drive by location if you are in the area.

The ruins of the old city walls disapointed a bit. Nice to make a stop if you have more items to visit that day but you can''t spend long there. About 30 mins max. Then you have seen it all.

Amazing city wall ruins. Very little information is provided on-site so make sure you read up on this extraordinary place to understand that beyond piles of old brick this ancient capital was of great importance through history. Make sure you continue your exploration by visiting...More

Reading Plugger14's review I really had fun. His lovely style of formulating an understatement: "I love old city walls and these look more genuine than some of the rebuilds in other cities". Or he is an art historian and sees more than those who aren't...More

We spent over an hour walking through this place and taking it all in. It helps to have a tour guide. If you have the time you should go. There were some great vendors too.
