Tiryns was associated in ancient legend with Perseus and with Eurysthus, in whose service Hercules performed his twelve labors.
Tiryns attained its greatest splendor in the late Mycenaean period (1400-1200 BC). The palace on the summit of the citadel was excavated (1884-85) by the German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann and was considered the most complete example of the home of a prehistoric king in the Aegean area.
Sharing the same billing as Mycenae on the World Heritage List, Tiryns although a lot smaller than Mycenae is no less important and is worth a visit to appreciate the site and the important part it played in ancient Greek history.
