The Mycenaean Acropolis at Koukounaries

The Mycenaean Acropolis is located on the rocky Koukounaries Hill. The important settlement was built in 1200 BC, with a palace and fortified with "cyclopean" walls. The settlement was destroyed by fire after an attack and siege and was abandoned. A portion of the settlement was inhabited again for a brief period in 1100 BC. A new town flourished in the Geometric period (10th-8th centuries BC) and the Temple of the Goddess Athena was constructed.

Regardless the season, Kolybithres and the Myceneaen acropolis at Koukounaries are worth visiting for the pure splendor of nature. It is easy to comprehend why our ancestors chose to build in the most beautiful locations!
