WELCOME TO MYCENAE!
Mycenae in Greece is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the country. It is located in the region of Argolis, between Argos and Nafplion.

Although this civilization was expanded in the entire country, the centre and most powerful town was Mycenae, the kingdom of the legendary king Agamemnon, ruler of the Greeks in the Trojan War. The ancient town was surrounded by gigantic walls, while the most famous spot is the Lion Gate, the entrance to the town with two female stone lions above.

Ancient Mycenae is one of the most impressive archaeological sites in Greece. It is located in Peloponnese, in mainland Greece. Dating from the Late Bronze Era, this was the kingdom of the legendary king Agamemnon, leader of the Greeks in the Trojan War. It was an influential center of that time and in fact it gave its name to an entire civilization, the Mycenaen civilization.
Surrounded by huge walls that were constructed by Cyclops as the myth says, it was a military-centered society with very limited interaction with other cultures. The most famous spots of Mycenae Greece is the Lion Gate, the entrance of the town, and the Treasury of Atreus, the vaulted tomb of king Agamemnon.
