This is so well preserved it's hard to believe how long these stones have existed! The whole site is so evocative and the information describing the lives lived is well presented at all stages. Very open and hot with little shade.

Great place to stop and take a picture when you visit Mycenae. Wasn't that crowded when we were there, but tour buses came frequently.

Quite impressive how architects in the past knew how to build earthquake-resistant structures. Reminiscent of ancient Inca buildings in macchu pichu.
