    Hemen yol kenarinda ve çok eğlenceli bir yer. Henüz çok bilinmeyen ama çok güzel eserler mevcut. Eşleri adına dikilmiş taşları özellikle beğendim. Taşlar üzerinde çok güzel kabartma resimler mevcut.

    Taşköprü İlçesi merkezinde bulunan antik kent M.Ö. 64 yılında Romalılar tarafından Paphlagonia (Paflagonya) Eyalet Merkezi olarak kurulmuştur. Kapalı höyük durumundaki antik yerleşimden çıkan mimari parçaların bir bölümü Taşköprü İlçesinde, arkeolojik kazılarda çıkan eserler ve mozaikler Kastamonu Arkeoloji Müzesinde görülebilmektedir.
