Amazing considering how many years ago it was built. It does not include the findings of the palace, you just get to see the building.

Was travelling with someone not initially as curious as me about Mycenaean Greece and it was this site that really sparked off her interest. It's a relatively small-ish area, mostly under a large roof that keeps the sun off. You don't walk among the knee-high...More
