The name is misleading as this site was in fact a tholon's tomb. It is dated around 1300 BC and it is truly impressive. The majestic entrance take you inside a dome structure, very tall. My guide said it was the largest dome structure on earth for over a thousand year.
Looking carefully you can still see the bronze nail who use to hold the ancient door frame.
The inside is made of 33 level of stones held together without the use of mortar.

This site does not have a proper parking but, as it is fast to visit the line of car near the entrance is always short and you can easily find a spot.

Directions: You will see it on your way to Mychenes, it is a few hundred meters before, on the left.
