Great for lazy daytime drive. Didn't stop at any of the buildings due to time. just drove around island and read the information signs. Great history and scenery. Plan to go back and visit the museums.
I loved walking through the sites where history actually happened. This is an active archaeological site. The museum of recovered artifacts is fascinating.
