    Very interesting site. Caves in cliffs used since stone age. Good parking. Lots of steps as you would expect.

    Wonderful! This strange house clinging to the mountain with its washbasins carved in the rock is full of things ranging from antique furniture to weapons, tools, clothes and everyday objects of the last. If you love old things it will be a paradise. You can climb up to the top and look down. At the end there was a scary exhibit about tortures and a shop for souvenirs.
