Even though there is nothing inside to see, the entrance to the site is amazing. Walking to the door feels like entering a temple to start and adventure.

We visited the ancient burial site in Mycenae. It is a large "tholos" tomb on the Panagitsa Hill at Mycenae, constructed during the Bronze Age around 1250 BC. The structure was built with big stones. Tiers of ashlar masonry were laid in rings so that...More

Don't just head for the museum and main site and miss this amazing edifice. It may, or may not, be the tomb of Agamemnon (probably not), but it is well worth a visit and its construction fascination.

The treasury is where the Mycenean royalty were buried. The structure looks like a beehive and began to be used perhaps in 1500 BC. The structure has an incredible doorway with cyclopian stone style walls. It is believed the structure is 42 feet tall and...More

These beehive structures are truly amazing. They were built to last and they've certainly done that. Thousands of years old and still standing like it was built yesterday. The Citadel is incredible to stand in. You can't tell how huge it is until you're actually...More

This monument is a real example of ancient architectural art. It is fantastic how the space inside has been built

Don't miss the Treasury of Atreus aka the Tomb of Agamemnon across the street from the entrance of Ancient Mycenae. This site is included with the admission to Ancient Mycenae, but it is really easy to miss if you are not specifically looking for it....More

The Citadel and Treasury of Atreus is a huge tomb from which you can get a feel for the engineering skills of the ancients. Worth a short stop.
