Very busy with tourists but parking available as visitors stop to browse and take pictures then move on. Worth stopping to take pictures and time to reflect.

Simply fantastic it does not take long, but it is worth to see, it is an impressive size, and do not forget all that it represents.

Nice to see live quite near so see it in my way to work every day. Seems quite popular but nowhere to buy food or use toilet.
