Treasury of Atreus

Let's delve into the heart of Mycenae's archaeological wonders. The "Treasury of Atreus" or "Tomb of Agamemnon" was built between 1300 and 1250 BCE, it's a massive tholos tomb and one of the last of its kind in the Argolid. This architectural masterpiece stands as a testament to the engineering prowess of the Mycenaeans.

Lion Gate

The iconic Lion Gate. Erected around 1250 BC, it is the largest surviving sculpture in the prehistoric Aegean, featuring two lionesses in a heraldic pose. This gate bears an iconic motif that survived without burial, and it's the only relief image described in classical antiquity.

The museum

You'll find a treasure trove of artifacts and historical exhibits that provide further insights into the Mycenaean civilization.

Cyclopean masonry

Cyclopean masonry, found in Mycenae's walls, is another intriguing feature. These walls, constructed with massive limestone boulders, seem unworked but are a marvel of ancient construction. The Greeks believed that only the mythical Cyclopes had the strength to move such enormous boulders, giving rise to the term "Cyclopean."
