  • A UNESCO worth visiting. A bit of history predating current inhabitants and inside displays of more recent history. Gift shop and modest self-serve restaurant with a stellar view seating inside or outside. Be prepared for walking several km on easy trails and wooden boardwalks.
  • important historical site. nice 3km long path with paintings. exhibition in the building is rather weak and could be more informative, but I believe the real goal are the antient paintings around, so I do not judge expo part. detiled guidebook included in the ticket price, helps a lot to identify and understand paintings on the rocks. nice cake and coffee place with stunning view.
