The treasury is where the Mycenean royalty were buried. The structure looks like a beehive and began to be used perhaps in 1500 BC. The structure has an incredible doorway with cyclopian stone style walls. It is believed the structure is 42 feet tall and...More

A short walk or drive down the hill from Mycenae , this is apparently the site of the tomb of Agamemnon. It’s an extraordinary structure! How they moved blocks of rock the size of the one over the entrance is amazing! There’s more detail on...More

Don’t miss the Citadel and the Treasury of Atreus which are located only a short distance from the main archaeological site of Mycenae (within walking distance). The Treasury of Atreus is a beehive-shaped tomb that is architecturally impressive. As the rows of stone go up,...More

If you are in mycenae, visit every part of the site. The dome is pretty amazing. Now they are wornking on the entrance so it has many iron beams, making it less attractive, but its ok

It's large for a tomb and is different to other types of tombs I have visited - well worth a visit. We visited in the morning (2nd stop and travelling from Athens) and the tomb was pretty quiet. There were a few other people and...More

The tomb is a short walk down from the main site car park. It is doubtful that it is the tomb of either Atreus or Agamemnon but it is certainly impressive. You can certainly believe that the walled walkway to the tomb entrance was the...More
