Also Mycenaean construction, this is a smaller, and more modest version of Mycenae. Well worth the visit *before* going to the Big Daddy of Mycenae!

Very hot September day. No shade so needed a hat and plenty of water. Just one coach came in whilst we were there but they didn't stay long. Very nice and peaceful to walk round. Trying to find the Galleries with the arch shaped roof was very difficult, had to walk round twice

Not as big and impressive as Mycenae, but it's right outside town and pretty easy to visit in less than an hour. Worth a stop as you pass by.
