I am glad that I am visiting this site in April and walking in open spaces is still very pleasant. I urge people coming here during the hot summer months (June-July and especially August which is supposed to be the hottest of all) to have in mind that they should wear flat shoes, carry with them some water, wear hats and sun glasses. There are no trees around so there is no shelter at all. Prefer visiting this site early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
The tombs are spread over a vast area with steps and pathways and we are enjoying this walk here today
The tombs are 7 or 8 in all but the best of all is #3 whose columns are really impressive with coffin spaces marked out.
On the site there is the little church of Pareklisia with traces of Byzantine frescoes but we did not have time to visit.
