After a picturesque journey of one hour from Korfos you will meet the legendary Mycenae of Perseus, Agamemnon, Iphigenia and the soothsayer Calchas. Fortunately for us, Henry Schliemann about 100 years ago, won the battle of time with the Dorians who set out to bury the Mycenaean Empire around 1100 BC with their famous descent and so even today we can visit the place that once dominated one of the largest empires of the then known world.

Two burial royal enclosures, the treasure of Atreus, the vaulted tomb of Clytemnestra, the gate of the lions, the royal palace, are just some of the monuments we will find in Mycenae to prove that even if the sacrifice of Iphigenia took place , the wind of time could not disperse the historical dynamics and importance of the great empire.
