Of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. Built on a rocky hill, embraced by the steep bed of a torrent, in the shadow of the highest peaks of Mount Evia, the prehistoric Acropolis of Mycenae is awe-inspiring to the visitor from the very first moment. The hill was inhabited since the Neolithic era, but during the late Copper Age, the settlement of Mycenae is known to have great prosperity (1350-1200 BC), giving its name to a culture that flourished all over Greece. Mycenae is the cradle of Mycenaean civilization. Its imposing walls, made of oversized boulders, are in excellent condition.
