THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF TIRYNS
Tiryns is the second largest Mycenaean acropolis, after Mycenae, in the eastern Peloponnesian region of Argolis. The hill of Tiryns was first inhabited in the Neolithic age. The settlement grew and reached its apogee in the Mycenaean Age (1600-1200 B.C.), as evidenced by the cyclopean walls, the great ramp, the megaron, the galleries (probably serving as storerooms) and tunnels (leading to underground cisterns). Listed a UNESCO World Heritage Site together with Mycenae, Tiryns fascinates the visitor and evokes the heroes of Argolic myth, as well as the modern epopee of excavations, from H. Schliemann to our day.
