The Lion gate is one of the most Iconic sights in all of Greece.
It has been photographed 1000's of times and published in countless books over the years, but to see it in real life is a highlight of any visit to Greece.
As you walk under the monument and enter into Mycenae, you can't help but imagining Agamemnon and all the other heroes of ancient Greece walking those same steps you are now taking.
