MYCENAE, TIRYNS

In contrast to other archaeological sites, Mycenae and Tiryns (1300BC), in the prefecture of Argolis, Greek Peloponnese, are towering constructions of huge blocks of grey stone, stacked with superb precision, forming the monumental impregnable walls that identify these Mycenaean citadels. Among my pictures are those of the Mycenaean Lion Gate, Mycenaean Grave Circle, King Agamemnon’s Throne Room and Palace, Massive Stone Walls, the Postern Gate and even a picture of the tourist buses crowding the car park! The site of the ruins of Tiryns, near Nafplio, gives views of the orange orchards on the Plain of Argolis. It’s largest building blocks are twenty metres thick and estimated to weigh fourteen tonnes each!  Pictured here are vaulted galleries and massive walls - now ruins situated among the wild flowers.
