Lonely Planet review
The most accessible of the archaeological sites, although the paved half-mile round-trip access path is still a moderately steep climb. Spruce Tree House was once home to 60 or 80 people and its construction began around AD 1210. Like other sites, old walls and houses have been stabilized.
