The treasure of Atreus is SO amazing to stand inside. If you are lucky enough to be alone inside - clap your hands. The standing waves/acoustics are really cool. How the heck did they build this thing 3500 years ago? Mind boggling.

The first in-depth excavations of this area around the ancient Mycenae were carried out in 1876 by the German archaeologist Schlieman, who was obsessed with finding the grave of Agamemnon.

Once again, worth the visit if you are in the area. The history on this place is amazing, my kids loved imagining how the built it. The only minus about this site is the cat smell in the chamber, easy to understand with all the cats roaming the streets.

We stopped because it was close to the main attraction gate and we were already there. You need 5 minutes maximum but it isn't a WOW by any means. if there isn't any parking just keep going and know you didn't miss too much!

How did they build this with such massive pieces of rock. Legend says it was the Cyclops who helped, however they did it was a fantastic piece of engineering. No treasure was ever found so the actual tomb belonged to ? back in 1250BC.

Nearby to the archaeological site of Mycenae, this tomb, known as the Treasury of Atreus is an excellent first stop on your visit to this area. Is clearly shows how the beehive tombs were constructed. About 3500 years old, the tomb was robbed of its wealth in ancient times and not much more is known.

We were biking back to our hotel. Barbara, my wife, noticed and put on the brakes. Let's go in and be transported back in time.
