Approximately at the same time, several other major Mycenaean sites on the mainland, among them Pylos, Thebes, Korakou, and Krisa, were destroyed by fire, while other settlements were completely abandoned.

The road runs through the village, with its small hotels, friendly tavernas and tourist shops, and then gradually up the east slope of the Panagia ridge. Halfway along this ridge lies the largest and most famous of the tholos tombs at Mycenae: the Treasury of Atreus or Tomb of Agamemnon, as it is called locally.

Thyestes became the king of Mycenae again, while Atreus' sons, Agamemnon and Menelaus, went into exile. The two brothers solicited the help of King Tyndareus of Sparta, who marched on Mycenae and restored Agamemnon to the throne of a rich and powerful state.

By killing a cousin, Agamemnon acquired Clytemnestra, Tyndareus' daughter, as his wife. welcome to Mycenae – GREECE. The site of Mycenae is located in the far north of the plain of Argos, in the foothills of Mt Zara and the hill of Profitis Ilias.

The site, product of many centuries of human occupation, now consists of a walled acropolis of the late bronze age, with surrounding remains of houses, industrial installations, and groups of tombs.

Mycenae, prehistoric Greek city in the Peloponnese, celebrated by Homer as “broad-streeted” and “golden.” According to legend, Mycenae was the capital of Agamemnon, the Achaean king who sacked the city of Troy.

It was set, as Homer says, “in a.

The stone architecture of Mycenae is unique in its kind, influenced by many civilizations like the Minoans in Crete. The archaeological excavations which began during the second half of the 19th century brought to light important architectural remains from the Mycenaean civilization including palaces, fortresses, settlements and burial monuments.

Mycenae, the legendary kingdom of the Atreides, is situated upon a small hill-top on the road leading from the Argolic Gulf to the north (Corinth, Athens, etc.). The site was inhabited since the Neolithic times (about BC) but reached its peak. One of the few groups of excavated houses in the city outside the walls lies beyond Grave Circle B and belongs to the same period.

The House of Shields, the House of the Oil Merchant, the House of the Sphinxes, and the West House. These may have been both residences and workshops.

Amid the debris of Mycenae’s Panagia House I, excavator George Mylonas found a “skeleton of a middle-aged woman whose skull was crushed by a falling stone.” The body was then buried by material from the house, including smashed vessels and a chimney pot.

Panagia, apart from her associations with these important saints from the Orthodox Church, is a very beautiful, very traditional village, with stone houses, their roofs and pathways clad in the local grey slate, narrow winding streets, and the spring waters which cascade down in and amongst the houses - between the pine and the fig trees.

Given the route to the megaron in BC and the superb view of the Argive plain from the west side of the upper acropolis, I am convinced that the Atreus Tomb was set into the east slope of the Panagia ridge so that it would be seen by anyone entering the palace of Mycenae.The wealth of Mycenae was obviously based on its agricultural resources.

And a surplus of olive oil is suggested by the House of the Oil Merchant and the Linear B tablets found there. A sufficient perennial water supply would be needed for the growth of the young olive trees for the first four years of their lives.Mycenae and Epidaurus Day Trip from Athens cancellation policy: For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
