Skip the meal. It isn't much. Most of the guides seem to be high school or college aged folks.

Very interesting

(Translated by Google) A great history lesson in a well reconstructed site and a guide at the top.
The shop is magnificent, various souvenirs for all budgets.

Superb moment of sharing civilization
