This is ancient Cyclopean archeology. A fortification dating back to the 5th century BC.
There are many walls in a variety of conditions but the marvellous thing is they are straight and use rocks which beggars belief at how they managed to assemble them. Hence it must have been a Cyclops that built it.
I did a right daft thing as well and got hold of a Prickly Pear. The obvious point is in the name, Prickly. So I ended up with about 20 painful spines stuck in my hand which took a good 5 minutes to get out. Some were small, hair like spikes whilst others were obvious like a hedgehog's. Any road, they hurt. Not something I will do again.
Due to the lack of decent shoes, sheila only had loose sandals we couldn't explore the whole acropolis. Next time we will be better prepared. The images show the terrain quite well I hope.
Total distance around 10km
And again 4 goes now at sending. Photos being deleted. Blogger? Ha.
