The so called “abundant in gold” ancient city of Mycenae was layed on a hill, six miles northeast of the city of Argos, and it was at the times of King Agamemnon and the Trojan War, where it was the most important city of Greece.

The more important surviving today monuments are the two burial royal enclosures. The bulk of the surprising findings (most of them are gold and characterized for their wonderful art) derives from their excavation. Also amazing are the treasure of Atreus (vaulted tomb), the vaulted Tomb of Clytemnestra, the Lion Gate, the Royal Palace, the Temple, the North Gate and the Underground tank etc.
