Gonio Reviews & Ratings
I had a fun time climbing around on the walls. Cool place totally enjoyable.
Very nice historical place. Would be nicer if they could clean the garbage left by previous visitors.
Not very much what to see, maybe at summer is more beautiful.
It's has fortress walls.. archelogical exploration is still under progress. You can go near to that exploration and watch. All excavated materials are kept open, you can touch lift.. no restrictions. One time visit. If you have free time.
Nice historical place and museum...
