Mycenae and Archaeological Museum

Mycenae, the seat of Agamemnon, leader of the Greeks during the Trojan war, is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.

The visitor will stand in awe in front of the famous “Gate of the Lions”, a sign of the powerful authority of the House of Atreus, and will admire the walls, which are as impressive as the ones of Tiryns.

The “Palace of Atreus”, the Grave Circles A and B, the “Tomb of Clytemnestra” and other findings constitute a window into the glorious past, as it was described in the Homeric epics. The Museum that is located inside the archaeological site exhibits approximately 2500 findings. The replicas of the gold death masks from the Grave Circle A are awe-inspiring, and possibly depict ancient Mycenaean kings.
