According to myth, the hero Perseus founded Mycenae, and it is the home of Agamemnon, the leader of the Greeks during the Trojan War as described in the Iliad and the Odyssey.
Near Mycenae is a huge dome-shaped tomb for a king. It is the oldest, best preserved example of this type of structure.
From the top of the citadel at Mycenae, you can see all of the Argos plain down to the Aegean Sea. It was in a very strategic location.
