Ancient Tiryns

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.
